Green Point Farm Wildlife Management Area in Dresden is a combination of fields, old orchards, and wooded wetlands. The state maintains the site as a grassy meadow, which produces a wealth of nesting sparrows, mostly Song and Savannah. Shrubs bordering the field provide nesting for Yellow and Chestnut-sided Warblers. Yellow-billed and Black-billed Cuckoos are seen sporadically. The sparrow numbers swell in fall migration and it’s a good time to look for Horned Larks and Snow Buntings. Waterproof footwear is recommended in damper seasons and on dewy mornings. The site borders the confluence of the Kennebec and Eastern Rivers in a shallow area full of wild rice. Large numbers of ducks are sometimes found during the migration periods in April and late autumn. Scout near the bridge.
Directions: from Route 1 in Woolwich take Route 127 north. Go 1.8 miles; turn left onto Route 128, then north on 128 to the Eastern River Bridge. Park at the large green shed on the west side of the road, 0.3 miles north of the bridge.
