Acadia Birding Festival

On the first weekend in June, Acadia’s birding community invites you and your family to celebrate the ecological wonders of the birds of the Gulf of Maine at the annual Acadia Birding Festival. Explore Mount Desert Island and its birds through numerous events and venues. Greet our warblers on early morning birding walks, visit with puffins and pelagic birds at sea, and observe Peregrine Falcons at an active breeding site in Acadia National Park. Our combination of lectures, walks, and adventures will connect you to DownEast Maine’s many bird species, diverse habitats and local birding experts.
