Acadia Birding Festival

IMG_1411Here’s something to tweet about: No less an authority than Roger Tory Peterson called Mount Desert Island “the Warbler capital of the world.” If you’re a birder—neophyte or experienced—make plans to attend the Acadia Birding Festival, June 11-14, 2009, on Mt. Desert Island.

Festival organizer Michael Good, of Downeast Nature Tours, took the former Warblers and Wildlfowers festival and relaunched it as Acadia Birding a couple of years ago. He’s got the street cred to bring in topnotch guests—noted orinthologists, naturalists, biologists, researchers, bird carvers and illustrators, ecologists, etc.— for guided walks and talks. It’s a great opportunity to add a few species to your life list.
