Lining up looking for sparrows!

Need help improving your sparrow identification skills? Sparrows are small and not very “flashy” so they can be challenging to recognize. Join us for a tour of Orono Bog, Prospect, and Frankfort, visiting the bog, Mendall Marsh, and nearby blueberry barrens. In addition to the more common sparrows, we’ll look for Lincoln’s, Vesper’s and Nelson’s Sharp-tailed Sparrows.
Location: Take Stillwater Ave to Tripp Road and meet in Bangor City Forest parking lot.
Saturday, June 22, 7 a.m. – noon
