Planning That Summer Vacation?

Remember Maine has incredible birding opportunities. Whether you would like to experience the coast as a family, or as an individual, there are Hog Island Camps that could fit your needs.

The Midcoast region represents the “Maine” many first-time visitors imagine: lighthouses, quaint villages, sailboats, lobster pounds, and idyllic inns. Fractured by glaciers, pounded by surf, and sliced by rivers, there is no place on America’s eastern seaboard that has more bays, sounds, coves, and estuaries. These geologic features contribute to the overall excellence of birding experiences.

One of Maine’s largest Great Blue Heron colonies is located on Wreck Island in Muscongus Bay. Black-crowned Night-herons are uncommon residents of the bay. At the outskirts of the bay lies Eastern Egg Rock, the southernmost colony of Atlantic Puffins in the world. Hog Island is located off Bremen, renowned as the headquarters of National Audubon’s Field Ornithology Camp. Roger Tory Peterson was its earliest instructor.

Ten miles offshore, Monhegan Island is internationally famous. As a migrant trap, it has few rivals. Experience these places and more on a trip to the Hog Island Audubon Camp.
