Summer Birding

Birding Excursions on Saddleback Mountain

Bird Watching Tips & Upcoming Birding Events 


Saddleback Mountain is one of many stops for a plethora of migrating birds and provides a thriving habitat to the rare Bicknell Thrush. This summer, the Saddleback Adventures team offers guided bird-watching hikes up the mountain to scan the hillside and take in the vast Northwesterly views over the greater Rangeley Lakes Region.  


If you prefer to enjoy the sights from the water, Saddleback will also offer a schedule of bird-watching paddle trips. Learn more about native species such as the Common Loon.
