Roger Tory Peterson called Mount Desert Island, the location of Acadia National Park and the Acadia Birding Festival, “The Warbler Capital of the World.” Past festival participants will agree. In addition to the festival boat trip to see seabirds, including the charismatic Atlantic Puffin, we’ll also visit woodlands for warblers, crossbills and woodpeckers, salt marshes for waders and sparrows, and high elevation boreal habitats for Bicknell’s Thrush and others. Join Denver Audubon and Reefs to Rockies for a fantastic week of birding in the Northeast!
