16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Machias Seal Island

Photo taken from a boat of Machias Seal Island, which is home to nesting Atlantic Puffins, Murre and Razorbills. The "photo blinds (green buildings with cut outs for viewing and photography)" provide perches for many of the birds. This is an island like no other. The bird activity is beyond compare!
