A return to the original Birds on Tap Roadtrip!, our most popular birding and beer tour returns to Scarborough Marsh. And just in [prime] time to search for and spot a variety of migrant shorebirds.

On this bird excursion, we’ll learn how to identify common species, look for local breeding areas, and search for the more rare Nelson’s and Saltmarsh Sparrows.

After about 3 hours of birding, you’ll be craving an ice cold summer ale from one of Portland’s craft breweries. The Brews Cruise will transport you in their air conditioned bus to two breweries to sample offerings and learn more about individual beer styles and flavors.
