- Birding in Maine
A virtual tour of Guide Ron Joseph’s favorite birding destinations
If you want to head in the right direction for birding this Spring, or perhaps add to your Maine
life list, this presentation is for you. Retired wildlife biologist Ron Joseph will share his deep
experience and knowledge of where to go and what you might see.
Ron retired as a Maine wildlife biologist in 2010 following a 33-year career with the Maine
Dept. of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, and the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He specialized
in migratory bird conservation by restoring habitat on private lands and conducting
breeding bird surveys. He also studied Canada lynx and bald eagles. Today, Ron leads
birding trips for Claybrook Mountain Lodge in Highland Plantation. He also writes for Down
East and Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors magazines.
- Warbler Walk
We will again be hosting our annual spring warbler walk along the railroad tracks in West
Farmington. We will meet at the Whistlestop Trail parking lot at 7AM. Our walk usually
lasts about 2 hours and is a rain or shine event, so dress accordingly. All birders’ eyes
and ears are welcome.
