Maine's Winged Migration Tour
Aug 16 - 20, Time: see website for schedule
Location: Acadia National Park, Lubec and Campobello Island
Trip leaders: Maine Birding Trail's, Bob Duchesne, and Schoodic Institute's Seth Benz.
Maine has a way of spoling people.
In late summer, shorebirds stream down the Maine coast, pelagic species flood the waters just offshore, and songbirds congregate in foraging flocks while preparing for their long flights south.
We'll spend two days in and around Acadia National Park, venturing offshore. Then, we'll shift up the coast to where shorebirds and boreal forest birds are more prevalent.
This tour will spend two nights at the Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park surrounded by the mainland portion of Acadia National Park.
Then, we'll shift to the Eastland Motel in Lubec for two nights, which sits within 15 minutes of Quoddy Head State Park and the South Lubec Sand Flats. We'll explore the spruce-fir maritime forest, Acadia's coastline, and visit Canada's Campobello Island.
A second tour is from August 26 - 30..
