WINTER BIRDS OF ACADIA NATIONAL PARK - Feb 3-6, 2022
Trip leader: Schoodic Institute's Seth Benz.
Winter birding in Acadia is second only to its outstanding scenery. Combine the two, over a several day stretch, and you magnify the discovery and beauty of it all.
Two iconic auto loops offer close observations of bird-bustling near-shore waters. Loons, eiders, scoters and gulls are common. Exciting diving ducks – Bufflehead, Long-tailed and Harlequin – are found in relative abundance in other secretive locations. Grebes, Purple Sandpiper, and an assortment of wintering raptors, including Snowy Owl, can be added to the possibility of spotting crossbills, siskins, and other birds of winter. This first-of-its-kind Schoodic Institute winter birding exploration offers informative classroom sessions and van-transported field excursions interspersed with hearty meals and dream-filled overnights in cozy housing.
