Interested in learning more about the sea birds you encounter when kayaking in Maine? For our April meeting, we are fortunate to have Doug Hitchcox, Staff Naturalist at Maine Audubon, talk with us about Birds of Maine’s Coast: Who they are and what you can do to help them.

Doug Hitchcox is a Maine native, who grew up in Hollis and graduated from the University of Maine in 2011. Throughout college Doug worked at Scarborough Marsh Audubon Center, and he was hired as Maine Audubon’s staff naturalist in the summer of 2013. He was also the Outreach Coordinator for the Maine Bird Atlas (2018-2022). In his free time, Doug volunteers as one of Maine’s eBird reviewers, and he’s the moderator of Maine’s birding listserv and rare bird GroupMe. He also serves as a York County Audubon board member and is a voting member of the Maine Bird Records Committee.
