MCHT Steward & Naturalist, Kirk Gentalen invites the public to join him on a guided bird walk at Erickson Fields Preserve. From 8:00 to 10:00 a.m., Kirk will lead a group around MCHT’s Teen Ag garden and through the woods to search for migratory songbirds – warblers, thrushes, vireos, sparrows – and discover what other feathered creatures inhabit the preserve. Over the last 25 years, Kirk has worked as a naturalist in 13 states and has led birding trips as far away as Alaska, California, and Georgia. Locally he has led trips for Mid-coast and National Audubon Societies, Down East and Acadia birding festivals as well as “Thursday morning bird walks” on Vinalhaven Island. Kirk Gentalen is Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s steward/naturalist for Vinalhaven Island where he also edits the “Vinalhaven sightings report” summary blog of natural history sightings from around Vinalhaven.
