Maine has much to offer in wildlife. One of the neatest birds we have, that can only be seen at certain times of the year is the Puffin. Machias Seal Island is the largest Puffin colony on the Atlantic seaboard. We went out and viewed some of these neat birds and I figured I would share a couple of photos. The island is also home to many other sea birds. Murres and Razorbills were also in abundance.
If you want to see these birds it would have to be a summer trip. Nesting season is mainly in June and July. The puffins start congregating on Seal Island in May and by mid August, most of the mature birds are back out to sea where they spend most of their life.
