Maine Audubon Private Tours with Field Guides

Your host and co-leader for the Maine Audubon/Field Guides tour series is Doug Hitchcox, Maine Audubon Naturalist.

Doug, a Maine native, grew up in Hollis and graduated from the University of Maine in 2011. Throughout college Doug worked at Scarborough Marsh Audubon Center and was hired as Maine Audubon’s staff naturalist in the summer of 2013 — a long-time “dream job.”In his free time, Doug volunteers as one of Maine’s eBird reviewers, is the owner and moderator of the “Maine-birds” listserv, and serves as a York County Audubon board member and member of the Maine Bird Records Committee.

On each tour offered in conjunction with Field Guides, Doug will be joined by an experienced Field Guides leader who knows the birds and logistics well. All of your tour arrangements, including air travel arrangements at no extra fee if you wish to have us make them, will be handled through our Austin office, which prides itself on top-notch service to all our tour participants traveling with us worldwide.

Note that if a tour should be undersubscribed but still operational, only one leader may join the group, in which case this will be the Field Guides staff leader.
