eBird was launched in 2002 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society. eBird provides rich data sources for basic information on bird abundance and distribution at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. See the latest totals of migratory birds in Acadia National Park, Frazer Point, Winter Harbor, Maine.
Help us count the thousands of birds that travel past Schoodic Point in autumn. Drop-in from sunrise until 9:30 a.m. every day (weather permitting) from September through November. Bring binoculars. Dress for the weather. No registration required.
A collaborative effort between the park’s Interpretive Division and Schoodic Institute’s Bird Ecology Program, Hawk Watch takes place on Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, the highest point along the Atlantic coast from the Canadian border to Brazil. Its latitude makes Cadillac Mountain a natural sentinel and exceptional early detection point for observing the northeastern-most headwaters of what becomes a spectacular river of southbound raptors. 2019 dates to be determined.
Frazer Point Early Bird Watch
Witness songbird migration, learn identification tips, gain bird conservation knowledge, and find out about a variety of opportunities to participate as a Schoodic Institute citizen scientist. Registration is required and space is limited. May 2020.
Environmental changes may affect birds indirectly by altering available food resources. Volunteer observers with the Downeast Phenology Trail help us document the presence of fruit and insects during the seasons.
Winged Migration Monitoring
We participate in the Motus Wildlife Tracking System, an international effort to monitor the movement and behavior of individual birds, bats, butterflies, and dragonflies.
