I have been fortunate to have served on the Land for Maine’s Future Program Board since 2018. The Land for Maine's Future Program is the State of Maine's primary funding vehicle for conserving land for its natural and recreational value. From where I sit an important part of Maine’s Conservation efforts.
We are in the depths of winter this week. Hight temperatures struggling out of the single numbers each day and lows either side of zero. There is a little more daylight every day and it is now 90 days until my first guided trip. You can still feel winter at the door though. I do not remember who told me that the chickadees begin to sing on January 21 each year; it was along time ago.
This has been quite the winter for vagrant bird sightings in our area. I am a very casual bird watcher but to like to know what species I am seeing and a little about them. This is the sort of information that I know my clients appreciate when we are out on the water. First there was a Barnacle Goose in Rockland hanging out with a flock of Canada Geese on the local football field.
