Join us for our third annual boat trip out of Eastport to explore the waters of Head Harbor Passage and look for birds and other wildlife. We'll time our trip to pass by the "Old Sow" whirlpool when high numbers of gulls will be feeding. Among the hundreds of Bonaparte's Gulls is our primary target, the rare Little Gull and this is a great time to be looking for other unusual birds like Lesser Black-backed, Black-headed, or even Sabine's Gulls. 

Local birders Chris Barlett and Woody Gillies will join us to help spot birds and provide insights and local knowledge of the area.

Bar Harbor Pelagic 2019

$175

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next session starts Sep 14, 2019 at 6 am

Members: $135 Nonmembers: $175

Maine Audubon’s annual fall pelagic trip out of Bar Harbor has long been a must-do outing for the region’s birders. The trip is so eagerly anticipated because of a great boat, great camaraderie, and, of course, great sightings of birds and marine mammals!

Past trips have encountered all three jaeger species, both Great and South Polar Skuas, thousands of shearwaters and storm-petrels, gannets, puffins, Razorbills, and Common Murres. Beyond birds, the marine mammal and fish show can be equally stunning with six different whale species, porpoises and dolphins, gray seals, and schools of tuna seen over the years.
