BAR HARBOR, ME—Join College of the Atlantic senior Anna Stunkel in her weekly journey around campus and out to the COA pier in search of the birds of spring. She will be taking all comers on a bird exploration on Wednesdays from 4 to 5 p.m. each week between April 3 and June 5.

Spring is a special time for bird lovers who watch and note the return of each migratory bird, whether in pairs or in waves. Stunkel has been taking people on bird walks since her first year at COA. This is her final term at the college—and the community’s last chance to wander campus with an experienced birder blessed with a sharp eye, keen hearing, and deep knowledge.

Join avid birdwatcher Stunkel as she searches nearby trails for common and uncommon birds, and heads to the pier with a spotting scope for possible views of loons, ducks, gulls, and other seabirds.

Please dress for the weather and bring a pair of binoculars if you have them. A spotting scope will be provided to view distant birds. All ages are welcome. The walks go on, rain, shine, or snow. For more information, contact Stunkel at or call 207-288-5395.
