Living on the Wind
Add to My CalendarSep 10-15, 2023
Last Date to register: Sunday, September 10th, 2023

A special session devoted to fall migration. This program includes a trip to Monhegan Island, world-known migratory hotspot and beautiful island village.

Mid-September is the peak of autumn bird migration in coastal Maine, and this intensive week of birding will take participants from tidal marshes and beaches to hawkwatches, spruce forests and the outer islands and waters of Muscongus Bay.

The highlight will be a trip to the fabled Monhegan Island, one of the best migrant traps in the Northeast. Monhegan is a place renowned for its birding, preserved rocky coastline, lobstering, and a famous destination for artists for over 100 years.

Throughout this special session focused on the fall migration, participants will take part in bird-banding, learn how to interpret and record nocturnal flight calls, and pick up tips from such experts as Scott Weidensaul, Drew Weber and Holly Merker.

The name of this session is taken from instructor Scott Weidensaul's Pulitzer Prize nominated book, Living on the Wind: Across the Hemisphere with Migratory Birds.

Note: Prices above include 2 days and 1 overnight stay on Monhegan Island.
