Birding and nature enthusiasts are invited to join members of the Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust, Sandy River Land Trust and Western Maine Audubon for a spring bird walk, led by Climatologist Peter McKinley, Ph. D., beginning at the Perham Stream Birding Trail kiosk on the East Madrid Road (#553) in Madrid Township on Saturday, May 23, 2015, with the early birds at 7:00 a.m.
We will then convoy to the higher elevations of the Barnjum area by car to look for higher elevation species like Bicknell’s thrush. This second hike of the day will be more challenging than the one on the Perham Stream Birding Trail. Please gather in the parking area by the birding trail kiosk at 10:00am for this hike. We will then determine how many cars will proceed up the logging roads to the backside of Mount Abraham. Hot coffee will be available – come enjoy the splendor of the western Maine mountains in springtime! For more information visit: http://www.mainetrailfinder.
