DOWN EAST MAINE & ACADIA: A Birder's Paradise
Saturday, May 25 - Sunday June 2
Guide: Gabriel Willow

Come along with NYC Audubon to explore Maine's “Country of the Pointed Firs”: a land of lighthouses, quaint villages, and lobster pounds . . . all nestled in a setting of primeval pine forests, bogs, and bucolic islands. Home to some of the East’s last true wilderness, Maine hosts populations of Atlantic Puffins, bears, moose, shorebirds, and dozens of warbler species. This land of forests and rocky coast has been an inspiration to artists and naturalists for generations.

This year we're offering our rugged Down East itinerary, visiting the "real Maine" from Acadia National Park up to the Canadian border. We will also participate in the 21st annual Acadian Birding Festival.

We’ll begin our exploration in Bangor, visiting forests and a bog trail before heading to the fishing village of Lubec, the easternmost town in the U.S. We will take hikes in search of boreal specialties such as Spruce Grouse, Boreal Chickadee, Gray Jay, and breeding warblers and other songbirds of the boreal forests. Following our exploration of the mainland, we’ll take a chartered boat to Machias Seal Island, home to the largest nesting colony of Atlantic Puffins in the U.S., with over 5,000 breeding there, alongside Razorbills, murres, and other seabirds. We will land on the island and closely observe the puffins and other species from bird blinds, alongside the biologists who live and work there. While on the water, we'll keep our eyes open for whales and porpoises. 

After thoroughly exploring this rugged Down East region, we will head down the coast to the world-famous Acadia National Park, a true national treasure of forests, rocky coasts, and mountains. We will participate in the Acadian Bird festival, with keynote speakers Doug Hitchcox, Raymond VanBuskirk, & Abby McBride, and hikes to local birding locales. Itinerary may be subject to change. $2,100 ($380 single supplement)
