Debbie Hawkes of Bar Harbor works as a paralegal in Bar Harbor, Maine. She served as president of the Downeast Chapter of Maine Audubon for eleven years. Like her husband, Ed, Debbie is always birding -- while on her noon exercise walks, biking the carriage trails of Acadia National Park, tending her flower gardens, or perhaps off following a 'hot bird' report. She and Ed, regularly lead birding hikes for their Downeast Audubon Chapter. And when Debbie takes time off from her job, she’s off birding -- on Mount Desert Island or further afield such as recent trips to Texas, Florida, Arizona, Southern California, Alaska, Newfoundland, and Costa Rica.
