Five-Day Trip: September 21–25, 2013
Four-Day Trip: September 27–30, 2013

of Maine, Monhegan is famous for a lack of cars, a sparse population and an abundance
these outings,we'll see everything from falcons to warblers,
from migrating monarchs to lounging harbor seals. Highlights
from prior trips range from Yellow-throated Warbler to
Yellow-headed Blackbird, from Black Skimmer to Blue Grosbeak, from Northern Fulmar to Northern Gannet. We often
see whales and Harbor Porpoises on this trip.
Our lodging is Monhegan
House -- simple and elegant (with some great cooks in the kitchen).
Bryan has been staying there with clients for more than a decade. We'll
rise early each morning to warm muffins, coffee, tea and then waves of migrating birds. We'll

trip is well-suited to serious and casual birdwatchers. We often
accommodate birders with non-birding spouses on Monhegan. The island
is 1.5 miles long and about 0.5 miles wide, which means we walk for four days. Or pass your time doing little more than watching the waves. We're offering two trip options in 2013:
Five-Day (four-night) Trip: September 21–25, 2013
Four-Day (three-night) Trip: September 27–30, 2013
