Bird watching in Ogunquit

by

bird1bird2Here are a few photos of our shore bird monitoring trips. Ogunquit beach currently has 3 adult piping plover and 4 newly hatched chicks.  

Our groups from The Falls at Ogunquit are helping to collect data on the plovers and other wildlife along Ogunquit beach. The data collected will help us follow the success rate of the plovers and other shore birds. We are lucky to have Ogunquit beach as one of the best habitats left for nesting shore birds in Southern Maine.  If the piping plovers can be successful other shore birds may return to our beaches as well. 

This is a great opportunity for our InnSeason guests to take part in coastal research while visiting beautiful places!
