Rad Mayfield will guide the group along Pushaw Stream to take inventory of feathered migrants. It all begins with a brief introduction on migratory birds over breakfast. We will take two 28’foot canoes (seat 12 persons each) to explore the shores of Pushaw Stream. Time permitting will take a look at the Alewife making their way over Pushaw Dam. Meet at the Parker Reed shelter in Hirundo Wildlife Refuge, accessible through Gate 1. Call 207.394.2171 by May 27 to reserve a paddle and seat.
