Mid-Coast Audubon will take a birding trip Saturday, May 7, to Sears Island.

Attendees may meet at Moody’s Diner on Route 1 in Waldoboro at 7 a.m., or arrange to meet en route to Searsport. At the head of Penobscot Bay, Sears Island offers stunning land and seascapes and provides habitat for numerous plant and animal species. A total of 601 acres of the island’s 936 acres are permanently protected under a conservation easement held by the Maine Coast Heritage Trust.

Participants will be looking for seabirds, eagles, hawks, warblers, vireos, flycatchers and more. All MCAS walks are free and open to the public; no pets please. For more information, call John Weinrich at 207.563.2930 or 350.9137.
