If you have been dying to know the difference between a laughing gull, a herring gull, and a tern, this is your opportunity.
On the tour, you will visit Eastern Egg Rock, which in the 1800s had been home to a variety of seabirds, which were overhunted. Puffins particularly were wiped out from the area. In the 1970's a naturalist had an idea of how to repopulate the area with puffins and terns and began the slow process that has resulted in 35 breeding pairs of puffins on Eastern Egg Rock. In addition, there are a plethora of other birds that the guide will assist in identifying. BRING BINOCULARS!!!
The best part is that a portion of the cost of the tour goes to Project Puffin.
