Searsport — Penobscot Marine Museum continues its celebration of Maine's bicentennial Sunday, March 8, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., with "Maine-ly a Celebration: Ducks and Other Birds We See by the Shore."

The cost of this program is $5 for museum members, $8 for non-members, $20 for families, and children 7 and under are free. The program will be held at the Museum’s Old Vestry building, 2 Church St.

Participants will learn to put names to the birds seen in Penobscot Bay, and find out more about loons with the Loon Kit from Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. There will also be a craft relating to birds.

Friends of Sears Island board member Rob Burke will present a program about mallards, eiders, buffleheads, loons, cormorants and more water birds that can be observed locally around Sears Island. A retired science teacher and birder, Burke will share information on the birds’ habitat and food and provide tips and tricks for identifying the many different species. He will finish his talk with an overview of Friends' activities.
