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.

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.

Amazing personalized experience. Steve did his best to make sure we saw everything we wanted, and was very knowledgeable about the area and about birdwatching as a whole. His scope was very cool as well, which gave us an amazing view at certain birds. We highly recommend this experience to anyone.

Steve was so friendly and fun to hang out with. He not only shared his knowledge - he showed us how to be better at it as well. We saw birds we have not seen before and he was really good at finding them. If you love birdwatching or want to become better at it, you should book this experience. Steve also talked to us from his (and our) educator point of view and had tips for including it in our classrooms. We also talked to him about future meet ups and other opportunities that would work for all of us.

We had a wonderful time bird watching with Steve. He’s very knowledgeable in birding and named almost every bird we saw (and heard) on the ocean and in the sky. He patiently talked about the features and behaviors of the birds and answered all of our questions from 2 absolute amateurs. The equipment he provided (binoculars and spotting scope) enabled us to observe the birds and their environment in great detail and we fell in love with bird watching! It’s great to be here at Plum Island in this season and we stayed after the tour to enjoy the solitude at the beaches, dunes, marshes. We saw many people came for the snowy owls — thanks to Steve we were so lucky to have seen 2 of them!

This was my first experience birding and it exceeded my expectations. Stephen was very knowledgeable and helpful. The location was fantastic. I walked away with new awareness and appreciation of birds that continues every time I walk out the door!

I was quite lucky with this birding trip -- I had the host all to myself! While he most certainly is an expert in the field, he makes amateurs like me feel at ease. A very friendly and accommodating host whom I highly recommend.
