I just finished the Road Scholar Acadia Birding Trip with Michael J. Good. Birding with Michael is a trip not to be missed who ever you are and where ever you have been. His birding knowledge and pleasant company is beyond compare. He makes sure that you get to see the birds that are at the location and he knows where to take you. Just go and learn, by your self or with a group with one of the world's best birding guides.

We just completed a five day Road Scholar tour of birdwatching with Michael Good of Down East Nature Tours. He took 14 total strangers to almost 35 locations on Acadia National Park and to Petit Manan. The trip went smoothly with no delays, and missed no schedule stops. Michael made sure that we all had an opportunity to see each of the 100 species that we were able to see and/or hear. He was concerned with each of us having a great experience. It was a great learning experience with a wide variety of expectations and experience levels within the group. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone wishing to see the birds of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

We had a very enjoyable time with Michael. We were first time bird watchers and it was an outstanding experience. Michael does a great job of finding where the birds are, and then locates individual birds with his scope that you would never have known were there. He can name all of the birds in the area just by listening to the calls. You'll also get a good look at parts of Mt Desert Island that you would have just driven by without noticing.

Michael led our family (parents + 2 somewhat reluctant college-aged boys) on a 5-hour birding adventure last August. All of us were total birdwatching novices. Michael took us to at least 8 different spots on MDI where we learned so much - not just about birding but also the ecology of the island. I recommend Michael and his tours without reservation. Even our reluctant sons were enthusiastic about the experience. The tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Maine.

We booked this tour outside the cruise ship, and I'm so glad we did. All details were executed flawlessly. Michael is a caring and personable tour guide and can answer any question you have about birds and nature. After being cooped (my only birder pun in this review, I promise) up on a cruise ship, it sure was nice to get out and stretch our legs and see postcard-worthy beautiful sights. After Michael whistled a few times, we practically had birds perching on our shoulders! What magnificent fun.
