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.
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.
