Participants will learn to put a name to the birds you see in Penobscot Bay, and find out more about loons with the Loon Kit from Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. There will also be a craft relating to birds. Friends of Sears Island (FOSI) board member Rob Burke will present a program about mallards, eiders, buffleheads, loons, cormorants, and more water birds that can be observed locally around Sears Island. A retired science teacher and birder, Burke will share information on the birds’ habitat and food and also provide tips and tricks for identifying the many different species. He will finish his talk with an overview of FOSI’s activities.

Friends of Sears Island is committed to the dual purposes of protecting the natural & cultural resources of Sears Island and maintaining public accessibility for recreation and education.

In case of inclement weather, this program will be canceled if the Searsport First Congregational Church cancels worship service. The Museum will also post cancelations on their Facebook page at Facebook.com/Penobscot. For more information contact Jeana Ganskop at 207-548-2529 ext. 213, or jganskop@pmm-maine.org.
