Imagine yourself going from almost silence in the pre-dawn to the magical moment called the “dawn chorus”.

It’s breeding season and it’s the 30 minute period at the end of night when all the birds begin to awaken soon almost all male birds will sing; quietly at first and then loud and hard. As the sun rises, EVERY bird in earshot is singing simultaneously. You are the audience.

The theatre is your private lakeside veranda at the historic Eagle Lake Sporting Camps. You are listening, watching the loons, and sipping a cup of expertly brewed (shade grown) coffee as the humming birds dance at the feeders. For birders and non-birders alike this is an experience of a lifetime; simply breathtaking and overwhelming!

Northern Maine boasts a great destination for birders and wildlife photographers. Home to a great many species of migratory and non-migratory birds, bird watching is a four-season event.

Typical Day

• View rare birds during breeding season & all summer, many just steps from your cabin!
• Observe, record, move on, or just linger with your camera
• 16 hours of daylight means a determined birder can record 100 species in a day

For those needing a little help to cover territory, our 26 foot pontoon boat provides a stable platform for photographing the multiple species of waterfowl, herons, and Bald Eagles.

Or, enjoy our canoes and kayaks on the protected coves and along our 4-mile thoroughfare.

A secluded marsh and other remote spots are a short all terrain vehicle ride away.

• Start your day with breakfast as early as 3:30 am
• Enjoy a shore side lunch at a special pond or on a secluded beach
• After a long day and a fine dinner, your cozy cabin awaits
• Read by the gas lamps then climb under a warm and fluffy comforter
• Or, wander over to the campfire and join other guests for star gazing
• Located in the midst of a 23,000 acre reserve, the Camps are off the power grid and the views are shared only with other guests at the lodge
