Maine Audubon's 2015 Pelagic Trip was stunning!

Every autumn, Maine Audubon charters the largest, fastest whale-watch boat in North America for an adventure into the Gulf of Maine. This trip took place on September 12, 2015. Eleven Great Skuas. Thirty Pomarine Jaegers...and much more.


Sea Ducks are now returning to the Maine coast after a summer of breeding on Hudson Bay. Grebes, scoters, eiders, mergansers, buffleheads, long-tailed ducks are starting to fill the bays. Double-crested cormorants are migrating south, and are being replaced by Great Cormorants moving onto the shoreline. See: Winter Birding.
