Eagle and Bird Watching

 The New England Outdoor Center rewards bird watchers with an abundance of nearby choices that add up to a gratifying bird watching vacation in Maine. Eagles are seen daily from Twin Pine Camps or you might get to hang with our very, gregarious mallard duck families! The Katahdin Region is a superhighway of migratory ducks, songbirds and raptors. It also provides various elevation habitats inviting denizens such as the Boral Chickadee, and Bohemian Waxwing. You also may see loons, goldeneyes, hooded mergansers, osprey, Canada geese and great blue herons.

Our guides can help you navigate the Northern Maine woods and lead you to a Bicknell’s Thrush, a Three-toed Woodpecker, a Black-backed Woodpecker and many more interesting, native species all in the midst of Katahdin.

To the south, enjoy great Maine bird watching at Hirundo Wildlife Refuge or Sunkhaze Meadows, a breeding habitat for black ducks, hooded mergansers, blue-winged teal, and ring-necked ducks. You will also see marsh wrens, thrushes and even Nelson’s sharp-tailed sparrows.

We encourage you to make the most of your Maine bird watching vacation with trips to the Maine Penobscot Valley Audubon Center and Eagle Island, Maine.
