Birding Tips

Here are a few tips to help you make the most of your birding experience in Acadia National Park:

* Bring binoculars and a field guide. Binoculars will help you get a closer look at birds, and a field guide will help you identify the species you see. * Go birding early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Birds are most active during these times of day. * Be patient and observant. Birding takes time and patience. Don't expect to see a lot of birds right away. Just sit quietly and observe your surroundings, and you'll eventually start to see birds. * Respect the birds. Don't get too close to birds, and don't disturb their nests or young. * Have fun! Birding is a great way to connect with nature and learn about the amazing diversity of birds that call Acadia National Park home.
