Ocean Drive Bird Walk Saturday, January 20 (snow date Jan. 21) 9:00 a.m. Leader: Chuck Whitney Sand Beach, Acadia National Park
Join us for a casual winter stroll along Ocean Drive between Sand Beach and Otter Cliffs. You can’t beat the view, and with the ocean on one side and evergreen forest on the other, we have the potential to see a wide variety of winter birds. Many duck species are possible— and who knows... maybe a King Eider will show itself. Three were seen near Thunder Hole in December! Remember winter access for the park is via Schooner Head Road. Please pre-register for field trips by calling 664-4400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
