Host: Catherine Schmitt
Maine’s diverse land- and sea-scapes are home to hundreds of species of birds, from forest songbirds to wading birds along the shore to sea birds that nest on offshore islands. Maine birds are the subject a new statewide inventory effort, which will be informed by the many agencies and organizations who monitor bird populations. 2018 is also the International Year of the Bird.
On our next program, host Catherine Schmitt will talk birds with Jeff Wells from the Boreal Songbird Initiative, Chris Bartlett of Maine Sea Grant, and Doug Hitchcox of Maine Audubon. They will discuss the Maine Bird Atlas and answer your questions about birds you’ve seen or heard in Maine. As always, your insights and experience are welcome as part of the conversation.
