Birding at Sipp Bay

Co-sponsored by Fundy Audubon

November 18, 2017 - 9:00 am-11:00 am

Departing from (or event address): Burby Road, Perry

Cost: Free

Join MCHT steward Deirdre Whitehead and Fundy Audubon's Woody Gillies for a morning of guided birding on the beautiful MCHT Sipp Bay Preserve. 

We will scan the waters surrounding the peninsula for wintering sea ducks such as mergansers, scoters, buffleheads, goldeneyes and loons. Bald eagles nest nearby and are often seen. The trip will involve some short easy walking and several spotting scopes will be available to view the ducks out in the bay.

Time permitting, some of us may go to Gleason Cove after we are finished at Sipp Bay to scan Gleason Cove for sea ducks missed at Sipp Bay.
