In mid-September, Maine’s Hog and Monhegan Islands become a hub for bird migration along the Atlantic Coast. Discover the bustling ecosystems of these charming New England islands as you join birding experts for an up-close look at native and migratory species. As Yellow-throated Warblers, Northern Gannetts, ospreys and other species begin their long journeys, explore their habitats during expert-led nature walks and private coastal boat excursions.


• Join members of an expert ornithologist team for explorations of bird habitats, and gain insight into the Audubon’s Project Puffin.
• Add seabirds — gannets, gulls, shearwaters and more — to your life list during excursions on board a private charter boat.
• Take an evening hike to the Monhegan Island Lighthouse and learn how to interpret nighttime bird calls.
