Birds and Breakfast at Adair Country Inn
Please join us this Sunday (May 25) of Memorial Day weekend for an early morning bird walk and special breakfast, or after lunch for our monthly Last Sunday hike.
ACT and the Adair Country Inn just off Route 302 in Bethlehem on Guider Lane, are offering a great event for birders of all ages and experience. Everyone is invited to do a bird walk with expert birders through the grounds of the inn, and then enjoy Adair’s sumptuous breakfast, including their famous popovers.
Chestnut-sided warbler lives in young forest and meadow edges.
The bird walk will start at 8 a.m. and the breakfast at 9:30. RSVPs are appreciated for planning! The all inclusive cost of breakfast is $15. The bird walk is free.
ACT has held a Memorial Day weekend bird walk for a number of years. It’s a great time to hear and see breeding birds including warblers, tanagers, vireos, and thrushes. The Adair property is over 200 acres of fields, wetlands, and forest, and it promises to be a lovely walk.
Bring your binoculars, bug dope, and bird book if you have one. We will introduce birding by ear, so bring your ears, too. This walk is suitable for walkers of all ages, and will go on paths and trails. Kids of all ages are encouraged!
To make a reservation so there will be enough popovers, by Friday please call ACT volunteer coordinator Angela Broscoe at (978) 828-5903 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last Sunday Walk at 1 p.m.
Our Last Sunday of the month walks are a great way to meet new friends and enjoy the land. At 1 p.m., we will start at the log landing at the Foss Forest on Pearl Lake Road, located 1.3 miles west of the intersection of Route 117 and Pearl Lake Road in Sugar Hill. Going from Sugar Hill toward Lisbon, the access is on the left, and will be identified by the hike leader’s red Toyota Prius. Coming from Lisbon, the access is on the right.
Bring your bug dope, binoculars, children, dogs, and camera, and be prepared to be out for about 90 minutes. This will be an easy hike through moderate terrain with great views.
