      Dear Fellow Birders-

      The National Audubon Society has opened registration for their
      legendary 6-day birding programs for adults, teens and families at the
      historic Audubon Camp in Maine on Hog Island. Pete Dunne, Scott
      Weidensaul, Steve Kress, Lang Elliott, Don Kroodsma, Bill Thompson III
      and many more expert ornithologists, naturalists, educators and
      authors will be in residence during the 2012 sessions. Website:
      http://hogisland.audubon.org

      Hog Island Audubon Camp is run by the Seabird Restoration Program
      (Project Puffin) of the National Audubon Society. All summer programs
      include field trips to nearby Eastern Egg Rock, where Dr. Steve Kress
      and his team of biologists have successfully restored an island colony
      of Atlantic Puffins, and Roseate, Arctic and Common Terns. Immerse
      yourself in the joy of birding with expert-led workshops, lively
      evening presentations, saltwater birding tours and trips to diverse
      habitats on the Maine coast. Roger Tory Peterson was the camp’s first
      birding instructor in 1936 and many of America’s finest naturalists,
      including Rachel Carson, have spent time on the 330-acre wildlife
      sanctuary, located in mid-coast Maine, on Muscongus Bay. Participants
      live in restored wooden buildings dating back to the early 1900’s and
      are treated to three fabulous meals each day, prepared by chef
      extraordinaire Janii Laberge.

      or call (607) 257-7308 x 14. You may also contact me at
      hogisland@.... Many programs sell out quickly so it is worth
      registering early. Nearly 100 scholarships are offered each year by
      local Audubon Chapters and birding clubs - see the website for more
      information.

      I hope to see you on the island next summer!
