Last week, I had the opportunity to take a tour to Machias Seal Island. This island belongs to the United States or Canada, depending on who you ask. Researchers stay on the island to (you guessed it) to study the habits and breeding of the Puffins, Razorbills, Common Murre, and Artic Terns. birds. This tour company is the only United States company that allows civilians to come onto the island. Once on the island, we are divided into small groups and go into blinds, hidden from the birds. What an amazing experience.
