Nesowadnehunk Lake, Baxter State Park,
and the Katahdin
25 June – 3 July 2020
But I was already 100% packed for a wilderness field trip, and I was itching to get into the cool and wet boreal forest. As a consolation, I planned a trip to the Adirondacks, to camp at Brown Tract Pond Campground and spend time in the nearby spruce bogs in search of American Three-toed Woodpecker—a bird that seems to be slowly disappearing from the Adirondacks. I had not seen this species in the Adirondacks since the 1970s, only last glimpsing the bird in northern Ontario in 2015.
