Wings, Waves, Woods Festival

Published on May 2, 2017 by Maria Lamb

 

Wings, Waves, Woods Festival
It is a small festival appreciated by beginners, but very attractive to visitors who take advantage of its many boat trips to get offshore and see puffins and Maine's wintering sea ducks. Two trips to Seal Island offer sightings of Atlantic Puffins, Razorbills, Common Murres, Black Guillemots, and Great Cormorants. Northern Gannets are likely, and other pelagic species have been encountered over the years, including Wilson's storm-petrels, Parasitic Jaegers, and Red-necked Phalaropes. More than twenty species of warblers are seen on the several guided walks on the island's preserves. Kids will enjoy the live owl demo and learning how to check blue bird nesting boxes for signs of new life. The Harbor Cafe, a local favorite, puts on a special birders supper.

REGISTRATION Contact Island Heritage Trust (IHT) at 207-348-2455 or marissa@islandheritagetrust.org; or register Friday, May 19, 4:30-6:30 PM at reception and art exhibit "Wings, Waves & Woods" at Pearson Legacy Gallery, 13 Dow Rd, Deer Isle. Registration packets are $35 (boat/plane trips, art workshops and Birder's Supper are additional), and include: bird list, nature preserve info, maps, Island Guide, local coupons, the coveted WWW cap and help support next year's event. Supper tickets purchase one of three entrees, rolls, side dishes, dessert and a drink; tax and gratuity included. For boat trips allow plenty of time for parking and boarding and dress warmly! For bad weather notices and program updates call IHT at 348-2455.

Meet The Author
Maria received degrees in both business and psychology and had worked as both a travel professional and a real estate agent when she realized that she could combine both of her passions — travel and residential real estate and design. Managing vacation rental properties since 2003, she has spent countless hours obsessively networking with other vacation rental professionals. Her love for residential architecture and beautiful landscapes has led Maria to collect houses around the globe, including one purchased sight unseen on the Bay of Fundy in Canada. She’s also been lucky to live in some really cool locales – an 18th century carriage house on Beacon Hill in Boston, a medieval castle in Europe, several resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico, and a historic Spanish-eclectic Pacific view home in southern California. Maria currently divides her time between an artsy farmhouse in Machiasport, Maine, a quintessential cape house on Cape Cod and a beach cottage in tiny Phinney Cove, Nova Scotia. Oh, and her, oh-so-chaotic, home life consists of a musician hubby, two teenagers, four cats, two dogs and a diaper-wearing house-chicken.
