Au programme

We will be birdwatching at the famous Parker River NWR on Plum Island for exciting migrant and coastal birds. I will lead you to birding hotspots and view points for locating, observing, and identifying the refuge's diverse birds. 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. (Note: For your safety, during the COVID-19 pandemic, all tours are run as Private tours constituted by family and friends only).

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 (Ogunquit, ME), Birding the Middlesex Fells (Boston, MA), and White Mountains Birding (North Conway, NH). Any of these might be substituted. Inquire to find out.
Other things to note
Dress for field birding conditions. Count on lower temperatures and higher winds than inland. All ability levels welcome. Trip provides 2-hr experience (recommend booking two trips for 4 hrs birding, ... or ask if adding on additional 2-hr block is possible).

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 (BS), evolutionary biology (MS), and ecology (PhD). An avid hiker, birder, and experienced naturalist, I love to share my experience and knowledge with others.

At age 18, I started birding in my home area south-central PA, before birding for several years in south FL, LA, and now (age 55) New England. Globally, I've birded in Western US, Hawaii, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Bahamas, and Dom. Republic

In 2016, I started Open World Explorers, offering birding tours, where I serve as guide and coach to help birders add to their Bird Life List and to improve their bird ID skills and knowledge.

Steve gave us a fabulous half-day birdwatching on Plum Island, northeast Massachusetts as birds migrated south through the reservation. Steve is a mine of information. He helped us find birds, gave us practical tips & taught us more about bird species & birdwatching. Steve is very knowledgeable, an entertaining leader & good teacher — he tailored his presentation to our knowledge level and interest. We definitely plan to do more trips with Steve!

If you're not a birdwatcher but wish to dip your toe in, this is the trip to take. We were thrilled by this experience. Steve's acute eye for birds and his ability to convey his deep knowledge of them made the trip a highlight of our vacation. We learned so much in a short time and looking up through the binoculars to see my first bald eagle ever and then my first peregrine shooing the eagle away high in the sky will remain an indelible image. And then, not far off another two young bald eagles! Fantastic. Birds aside, the salt marshes are beautiful. My family and I loved Plum Island and Steve's tour. If I could give this 6 stars, I would. We were so transported, we'd love to return!

We had an amazing experience with Steve at Parker River National Preserve. Steve is friendly, highly knowledgeable, very engaging and entertaining. He was educational without ever being boring. He kept the whole family interested and enjoying the tour the entire time - so much so that we extended our tour for extra time. And boy did he deliver. We saw a bunch of rare species - life birds for me! I would highly recommend Steve for anyone interested- beginner to advanced.

Tremendous birding experience in a fantastic location. Steve humbly and expertly shares his knowledge and enthusiasm. Over 20 species in a few hours and a half dozen new birds to our life lists. Great time and a very fun, memorable experience.
