Birds of Casco Bay ~ Boat Tour

Adults: $45, Children (2-12) $25

BOOK HERE

Join the crew of Seacoast Tours and Derek Lovitch from Freeport Wild Bird Supply on a special tour of the islands and waters of Casco Bay. We’ll explore the inner islands of Freeport, Brunswick and Harpswell as we search for osprey, eagles, eiders, Common Terns, and an occasional seal basking in the sun on the ledges of hidden coves. We’ll focus on the common breeding water and shoreline birds of the region, including photographic opportunities whenever we can, but without disturbing any nests.

Conditions and tide permitting, we’ll poke around the mouth of Maquoit Bay and especially up into Middle Bay, where species not usually seen in Maine in the warmer months often linger. These could include all three species of scoters, Common and perhaps even Red-throated Loon, and Long-tailed Duck – all of which have spent a summer in Middle Bay over the past few years. Shorebird migration will be well underway, and we’ll check a few offshore islets that are prime roosting areas for a variety of migrants.

Conditions and tide permitting, we’ll poke around the mouth of Maquoit Bay and especially up into Middle Bay, two of the richest areas for waterfowl concentrations.  If we can find a mass of American Black Ducks, we’ll scour them for a variety of other dabblers, such as Green-winged Teal and Northern Shovelers.  Some of our wintering and migratory bayducks, such as Surf and White-winged Scoters will just be arriving, and Common Loons begin to build in for the winter.
