In answer to the burgeoning interest in ecotourism - and to the delight of resident and visiting long-time and novice birders - the Maine Birding Trail officially opens in 2009. Down East Books is proud to publish the authorized guide, featuring more than 269 sites, plus bonus material on Campobello and Grand Manan islands. Unlike most guides, which emphasize species identification, this book highlights the sites themselves. Bird enthusiasts will count on it to lead them to the best birding locations in Maine and to list the species they will likely find at each destination.
Appendix information includes: a Maine Bird List, Trip Planning, Bird Finding, Atlantic Puffins and Pelagic Birding, Pests and Hazards, ABA Code of Ethics, and Acknowledgements.
