Edmunds/MNWR: Wildlife and Woodcock Management Hike

Maurry Mills, Bob Duchesne

On this evening wildlife and birding outing, we’ll explore a diverse selection of forest and field habitats. We will visit areas managed specifically by Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife to benefit woodcock; these same areas also provide homes to more than fifty other species. This property is also home to Black Bear, Eastern Coyote, White-tailed Deer, Porcupine, Snowshoe Hare, and Ruffed Grouse. Barred Owl, Saw-whet Owl, and Great Horned Owl are all resident and with luck we might hear one or two of these, as well as Common Nighthawk.

There may be a drive to facilitate wildlife sightings, followed by a short hike. Bring a headlamp or flashlight, as it will be after sunset when we return.

Meet at the CCLC parking lot following the Sunday evening dinner. Be prepared to drive/ carpool to a designated location. Restrooms at the CCLC.
