The Moosehead Lake Region is full of wildlife!
The Moosehead Lake Region is a perfect location for birding. In fact, it was the first area in the state to be researched and mapped for the Maine Birding Trail.
Almost every warbler of the northern forest can be found here. Even hard-to-find species thrive in the area, including spruce grouse, boreal chickadee, gray jay, black-backed woodpecker, Bicknell’s thrush and white-winged crossbill.
While visiting the North Woods you will also have opportunities to see water loons, herons, kingfishers, songbirds and birds of prey. It isn’t hard to see why Moosehead is a birding destination!
Birders interested in hiking should venture into Monson and explore the trails on Borestone Mountain which is an Audubon Sanctuary! Remember to bring your binoculars when heading up the mountain, don’t forget your binoculars…you never know what you might see along the way.
Whether you are specifically visiting for bird watching or just enjoy sitting lakeside and taking walks in the woods, it is certain that you will see and hear our birds while you are here.
Spring provides amazing opportunities for bird watching, but guests can be sure they will catch a glimpse of birds that call the Moosehead Lake region their home all year long.
Those looking for a guided birding experience while visiting Moosehead will find that local businesses such as Northeast Whitewater in Shirley offer bird watching tours.
