The Birds Are Coming!

Dear Cooking & Eating Friends:

The noble osprey is one of the first birds that return to Crockett Cove from their winter home in Central and South America.
Soon the cove is frequented with the diving and  dabbling of ducks and the persistent honk of Canada geese. By mid-May, the spring bird migration has begun in earnest, bringing over 20 species of warblers and other breeding songbirds up from their wintering grounds to the south.  Wings, Waves & Woods is a celebration of this annual wonder of nature.
For three days every year, folks flock to the island of Deer Isle, where lobster fishing and clamming are still our major business enterprises.  Some of the best birding can be found on our island's quiet, out-of-the way dirt roads and on miles of trails on 14 nature preserves.  Local naturalists, birders, and residents welcome you to join them for this unique weekend adventure.
Take a boat tour for a close-up look at seabirds, seals & porpoises.  Learn about tracking the winter journeys of Maine's great blue herons from Maine wildlife biologist Danielle D'Auria.

Visit art galleries, our local infamous organic coffee roaster , 44 North, and Nervous Nellies, my favorite jam maker and art experience.
Here at Rabbit Hill, as part of the festivities, enjoy treetop birding while dining on piping hot popovers with Crockett Cove Clam Chowder or Root Vegetable Chowder.
Join us for Birding Festival Lunches!
A certified organic farm, commercial food processor, and winery, Rabbit Hill is a family friendly homestead.  Hosts Chef Cheryl, Flip & Spruce, our Nova Scotia Duck tolling retriever, invite you to feed the baby rabbits, walk to Rabbit Island, explore the Crockett Cove woods preserve, and taste the latest vintage of sparking cider from the Deer Isle Cider Company.
