Birds of Maine

Maine's forests and ocean shorelines provide habitat for everything from songbirds to shorebirds. 

Maine is a popular destination for traveling birders and the Maine Birding Trail makes it easy to navigate the best birding locations.  The state also plays host to several birding festivals throughout the year.
