Rangeley Birding Festival
June 9, 2023 – June 11, 2023 EDT
The Rangeley Lakes region is the premier birding destination for rare and sought-after species in New England. Deep in the heart of Maine’s lush boreal forest, Rangeley provides a convenient hub to find northern specialties like Black-backed Woodpecker, Bicknell’s Thrush, Spruce Grouse, and Boreal Chickadee, as well as breeding warblers including Cape May, Bay-breasted, and Mourning. While other festivals hope to catch birds as they migrate through, in Rangeley they’ve reached their destination and are on territory. No other festival in New England provides such convenient access to so many boreal birds. The festival features top-notch guides and an eBird presentation. This year we will offer birdwatching from canoe or kayak on the Kennebago River.
