Birding camp for adult birders

National Audubon Society recently announced that it will open Maine's Hog Island camp in 2010 for four adult sessions and one teen session. First opened in 1936, the camp on Muscongus Bay closed in 2009 but will offer a late-May 2010 session for adult birders.

In the first "Maine Seabird Biology and Conservation" session, adults can work with Dr. Stephen Kress and Project Puffin biologists for seabird censuses on several Muscongus Bay nesting colonies. Campers also will learn about seabirds' lives and migrations.

The same program will be offered in mid-September and serve as a bookend for the season. The two other adult sessions are Field Ornithology I and Field Ornithology II during consecutive weeks in June.

The roster of camp instructors for various sessions includes Pete Dunne of Cape May Bird Observatory, Lang Elliott of Nature Sounds Studio, Kenn Kaufman of Kaufman Field Guides, Kim Kaufman of Black Swamp Bird Observatory, and author and ornithologist Scott Weidensaul.

Oh man--my girlfriend is from Maine; too bad I don't still live up east--we could go up there!
