Guide Book

Maine Birding Trail Guidebook Research for the Maine Birding Trail began in 2003, spanning well over 300 locations across the state. Five years and 36,000 miles later, the trail has launched with the designation of 82 official sites - sites that feature excellent birding, but also excellent parking, paths, facilities, etc. The brochure contains short descriptions and regional maps.

The companion Maine Birding Trail Official Guide details over 260 sites, many of them off the beaten track and away from crowds. The guide features over 100 new maps, secrets for finding sought-after species, and advice on trip-planning. It includes bonus chapters on two nearby Canadian islands: Campobello and Grand Manan. As new public lands and private trusts have become available to birders over the last decade, this guide brings site descriptions of Maine birding into the 21st century. The Maine Birding Trail Official Guide is now available online from Down East Books. It is also available from most local Maine bookstores and at all Maine Audubon centers including Gilsland Farm in Falmouth and Fields Pond in Holden.
