Admit it. You are desperately looking forward to Spring migration.  Since this seemingly endless winter will not loosen its grip, your dreaming of warblers as you watch the chickadees flit back and forth to the feeders. Here’s something that will warm your spirits. 

The Acadia Birding Festival is a great place to experience Spring migration....AND this festival comes highly recommended! Great birds, beautiful landscapes, awesome speakers, amazing food, and the best birders to mingle with! You won’t be disappointed.This is a genuine plug for this festival!!!
