Not far from the Scarborough shore, Stratton Island is a nesting colony and roosting site for a remarkable diversity of coastal birds.

A project site of National Audubon’s internationally-recognized Seabird Restoration Program, Stratton is normally inaccessible to visitors. On these special outings, however, we will be able to land and have a uniquely intimate experience among the 1,000 pairs of terns. Observation blinds provide remarkable photographic opportunities. The island’s extraordinary bird colony includes great blue, little blue, and green herons; black-crowned night-herons; snowy and great egrets; glossy ibis; common, roseate, arctic, and least terns; blue-winged teal; sora; and one of Maine’s rarest breeding birds: the American oystercatcher. You will also hear the latest research from the seabird biologists and view the challenges they face spending a summer on an island.Participants must be able to get in and out of boats and inflatable dinghies for this trip.
