Monhegan Island is 10-miles off the coast and is a magnet for migrating warblers and other songbirds. We’ll see hawks, falcons, marsh birds, and many seabirds from the boat and shore. A stop at the Monhegan Brewery is a great end to a wonderful day of birding.
We will meet at Monhegan Boat Line in Port Clyde at 6:45 am. We welcome birders of all ages and skill levels.
