    Maine Audubon’s annual fall pelagic trip out of Bar Harbor has long been a must-do outing for the region’s birders. The trip is so eagerly anticipated because of a great boat, great camaraderie, and, of course, great sightings of birds and marine mammals!

    Past trips have encountered all three jaeger species, a rare great skua, thousands of shearwaters and storm-petrels, gannets, puffins, razorbills, common murres, five different whale species, porpoises and dolphins, gray seals, and schools of tuna.

    To help prep for this trip, local bird expert, Louis Bevier, will give a ‘Pelagic Primer‘ workshop on September 16th, the Tuesday evening before the trip. More information is available here.
