Every autumn, Maine Audubon
charters the largest, fastest whale-watch boat in North
America for an adventure into the Gulf of Maine. This trip
took place on September 12, 2015. Eleven Great Skuas. Thirty
Pomarine Jaegers...and much more.
Sea Ducks are now returning to
the Maine coast after a summer of breeding on Hudson Bay.
Grebes, scoters, eiders, mergansers, buffleheads,
long-tailed ducks are starting to fill the bays.
Double-crested cormorants are migrating south, and are being
replaced by Great Cormorants moving onto the shoreline. See:
are 82 sites on the official Maine Birding Trail.
Many more great sites were researched and remain relatively
secret. Over 260 are documented and mapped in this handy guide,
including maps, and bonus chapters on the Canadian islands of
Campobello and Grand Manan.
