Just up the road from our Penobscot Outdoor Center at Baxter State Park, 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.
Other area birds include boreal and woodland warblers, yellow-bellied flycatchers, finches, crossbills, and golden-crowned kinglets. 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.
