Birdsacre




There's a wonderful bird sanctuary and rehabilitation center nearby, so when we went off island last week to release our salmon, we stopped by Birdsacre. Grayson was our guide for the day, and he brought out a young Barred Owl to show us. It was a young bird named Perry, after Perry, Maine, the town it was found in. Perry was very mellow and seemed comfortable with our close proximity. It was amazing to get up close and personal with so many birds. The preserve itself is 200 acres and though we didn't get too much time to explore, several kids checked out some of the trails. We hope to go back again and explore even more. It's hard to believe that such a large refuge is right there on the main road going into Ellsworth. Really impressive place! Go visit if you're in the area. Stanwood Preserve
