Coastal Maine beckons with breeding seabirds, salt marsh specialists and beautiful seaside scenery. We’ll explore all the avian diversity Maine has to offer, including out on the open ocean! Our adventure includes a special boat trip to observe pelagic species and nesting Atlantic Puffins on Eastern Egg Rock. We’ll also visit the salt marshes and estuaries of Scarborough to look for nesting Nelson’s and Saltmarsh Sparrows, as well as a diversity of herons including Little Blue Heron and maybe Tricolored Heron or even a Little Egret, a rare semi-annual visitor from Europe. The diversity of birds we’ll see on this trip will be memorable– everything from warblers to waterfowl and shearwaters to shorebirds!
