Seabirds of Matinicus Rock
Friday Jun 8, 2012 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM
New Harbor, ME
Members: $80.00 Non-members: $100.00
A 32-acre island 18 miles offshore at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, Matinicus
Rock is one of Maine’s most important seabird nesting colonies. Here,
Atlantic puffins, razorbills, common murres, black guillemots, arctic and
common terns, and laughing gulls all gather to nest.
Motoring out of New Harbor aboard the Hardy III, we’ll cross the mouth of
Muscongus Bay, passing close by the seabird colony at Eastern Egg Rock
where roseate terns nest. With plenty of open-water habitat along our
route, we could see a good array of pelagic species, including Wilson’s
storm-petrels, northern gannets, common murres, phalaropes, greater and
sooty shearwaters, black-legged kittiwakes, and jaegers.
