,Maine is a great choice for stunning landscapes, mammal, or bird watching. See also my field herping page for Maine. I have now taken four trips to Maine with the last two trips including Baxter Park and "Downeast". I would highly recommend getting away from the population centers in South-Coastal Maine and into the more remote areas where the most stunning landscapes can be found and it is still possible to enjoy true wilderness areas. If you are a birder, ruffed and spruce grouse are not uncommon and I have found both without too much effort, Moosehorn NWF has nesting ledges for Osprey and Eagles along charlotte road, and a trip to Machias Seal Island is highly recommend where you can see the puffins at the closest possible distance. Quoddy Head, Baxter State Park, and in neighboring Canada Grand Mannan and Campobello islands provide stunning scenery that will make any person with a camera seem like a National Geographic photographer. I recall one day parking along a road in Grand Manan island and sitting at a picnic table overlooking the coast. It was the most incredible sight I have ever seen still to this day. The waters were so alive with activity. Dolphins jumping, gannets diving, even whales and seals could be seen at the edges of the activity. The high sea cliffs, the beautiful lighthouse, even the ride on the ship to the island doubles as a whale watching cruise and I saw many from the deck of the ship.
