Birding at Claybrook Mountain Lodge is unique because it’s located at the northern edge of the eastern deciduous forest and the southern edge of the boreal forest. Add to this the habitat mix, the extensive grasslands and marshlands a few miles to the south, and it’s easy to understand why birders consider this area one of Maine’s best inland birding hotspots. This trip will concentrate on Maine’s boreal specialties including Spruce Grouse, Black-backed Woodpecker, Olive-sided and Yellow-bellied Flycatchers, Gray Jay, Boreal Chickadee and Lincoln’s Sarrow. Participants can expect to do some moderate hiking. Time will also be taken to observe and enjoy the flora and fauna along the way. Limited participation. Contact the leader for additional information and reservations.
