Programs

2020 End of May Midcoast Maine Bird Watching Program 

The 2019 program was so well received we plan to repeat it this year, see below what a couple of 2019 attendees had to say and see what was included in the program below. 

“What a wonderful experience at the Bradley Inn! We met friendly people, great food, and beautiful surroundings! Tony and Laura set up everything for us to do on our “bird” visit. We went on a Puffin Tour, a nature walk at Great Salt Bay with Education Director Sarah Glade, and a morning bird walk around Pemaquid Peninsula, with Maine Audubon’s Nick Lund. We were able to leave New Harbor with new information and new friends.”

Midcoast Maine is a mecca for avid birders, with the end of May being the time when all the migratory birds are making their way back for the summer, especially shorebirds, which peak at the end of the month.  Our location is perfect for early morning walks to the water or just strolling the grounds and neighborhood in search of sightings.  In addition, the Alewives begin their journey up the local waterways from the ocean to their freshwater spawning grounds, attracting fish eating birds of prey. Plus, it’s fun to see the fish leaping out of the water working their way up the streams and fish ladders with the birds circling above.

The Bradley Inn has put together a program for new and seasoned bird watchers by partnering with frequent speaker at Maine Audubon birding events,  the Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust and Hardy Boat Cruises for a diverse program with guided walks, discussion and identification assistance.

The Bradley Inn, with its 16 rooms, dining facility and large common area, makes for a great location for all types of groups – from classes to reunions to a girls’ weekend away. With nearby hiking and kayaking, onsite spa services, and walks to the lighthouse, you can easily round out the day. 

Enjoy the onsite firepit with drinks or S’mores or play a game of bocce ball, croquet, badminton or disk golf.  The location is perfect for photography with sunrises, sunsets and an iconic lighthouse. With little to no light pollution the night sky is full of stars, over an open ocean, and depending upon the timing the milky way as well can be clearly seen.

Pemaquid Peninsula is also one of Maine’s best locations for bird watching, due to the number of birds that either live here or migrate through the area. 

We can schedule special dinners, wine and beer tastings, or other specific activities.
