Field Trip: Monhegan Island

September 21 @ 6:30 am - 5:30 pm

Join us for a birding adventure on Monhegan Island, located 10 miles off the coast of Maine. This renowned mid-coast migrant trap is a magnet for migrating warblers and other songbirds. We’ll also spot hawks, falcons, shorebirds, and many seabirds from the boat and shore.

We’ll be traveling to and from the island using the Monhegan Ferry which departs from Port Clyde at 7:00 AM and returns at 4:30 PM (the trip takes about one hour each way). Attendees must make their own ferry reservations in advance by calling the Monhegan Boat Line at (207) 372-8848 or reserving online. Please plan on meeting at the Monhegan Ferry dock in Port Clyde by 6:30 AM.

This trip will be led by Mael Glon and Jeff Cherry. We are capping this trip at 15 participants because the roads and trails on Monhegan Island are often packed with tourists and shuttles, making it difficult to lead a big group. For more information or to sign up, please send an email to Mael Glon (midcoastfieldtrips@maineaudubon.org) with your name and phone number.
