YCAS Annual Meeting

Our annual meeting will be held at the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust, 7 Gravelly Brook Road, Kennebunkport.

  • 6:45pm: Annual Business Meeting
  • 7:00pm: Social Time & Refreshments
  • 7:30pm: Program — Songbird Migration in the Gulf of Maine: Past, Present, and Future

For our program, Rebecca Holberton and Adrienne Leppold from the University of Maine Laboratory of Avian Biology will help us to see how what happens in the Gulf of Maine affects us, our birds, and other wildlife.

One of the nation’s leading bird biologists, Rebecca Holberton, and her graduate student Adrienne Leppold have discovered a ton of new information about Maine’s songbird migration. Information gathered by a cooperative of Canadian and U.S. nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and university researchers have been shedding light on the routes our birds use. Tonight we will learn the amazing story of the discovery of a superhighway for songbirds migrating between Canada and South America and what it implies for the future.

The meeting and program are free, but reservations are required before June 1. Please call 207-967-4486 or email davidd@roadrunner.com to reserve your spot.

About Harlequin

Harlequin is a pseudonym for content not attributed to a specific author. It echoes the name of the YCAS newsletter, The Harlequin. Watch for Harlequin Ducks along the rocky portions of the York County coast in winter. ¶ The avatar is by Louis Agassiz Fuertes, who sketched and painted the species during the Harriman Alaska Expedition. ¶ "When we got before the glacier, I saw my first pair of harlequins... the glass showed them plainly to be a ♂ + ♀ histrionicus." — L.A. Fuertes, June 7, 1899
