What you'll do
We will be birdwatching at the famous Parker River NWR on Plum Island for exciting coastal birdwatching. I will lead you to birding hotspots and view points for locating, observing, and identifying the diverse birds that live here. I will let you identify the birds yourself, or provide identification tips or answers depending on your preference. Identification by birdsong and call lessons is also offered. We will attempt to build a large list of species that we observe and this list will be submitted to the eBird database of bird observations for scientific usage. If you do not see a date and time fits your schedule, send an inquiry or request to me. I might be able to make the schedule work for you or your group. Other related AirBNB Experiences offered are Marginal Way Birding (Portsmouth, NH), Birding the Middlesex Fells (Boston, MA), and White Mountains Birding (North Conway, NH). Any of these might be substituted. Inquire to find out.

In the mid-1990s, I moved to NH and worked as a bird observer in the White Mountain National Forest. I have lived in New Hampshire over 20 years and have explored most of the state. I hold university degrees in marine biology, evolutionary biology, and ecology. An avid hiker, birder, and experienced naturalist, I love to share my experience and knowledge with others. In 2016, I started my birding and guiding company, Open World Explorers. I serve as a birding coach to help aspiring birders improve their bird ID skills and knowledge.
