As many of you know, I'm the lead admin of the Facebook group MAINE Birds. It's an educational forum about wild birds in Maine. I invite any of you with event notices such as this one from Linda to post to that site. You will need to be a member to do so. I cross post most of the list serve posts to that page. We are at almost 18,000 members, so it's great coverage. RRR

Subject: [Maine-birds] Bird Monitoring at Scarborough Marsh
Just a reminder about our bird monitoring this Saturday!
Join us on July 14 from 7 - 10 am for our annual marsh-wide survey of birds at Scarborough Marsh The survey will document the numbers of individuals and species present in the marsh. Depending on the assignment, surveys could last between 1-3 hours and may be done on foot, by car or from a canoe (provided at the marsh or bring your own). Beginning birders welcome! They will go out with experienced monitors. Data gathered will be imputed into eBird and the Maine Bird Atlas where applicable.
The morning will start with a brief introduction to the marsh and the survey methods. After that, monitors will disburse to their assigned sections, and actual surveys may last up to several hours (depending on location surveyed).
