From deep evergreen woods and interior lakes, fields and farmlands, to world-famous beaches and rocky shorelines, Maine is a paradise for birds. Over 450 species are recorded in the state and because it's ideal for both migrating birds in the fall and spring as well as year-long residents, birders can see a multitude of species in every season. Maine has many sanctuaries, wildlife preserves, and local parks and both the spectacular Baxter State Park and the staggeringly beautiful Acadia State Park on Mt. Desert Island. All of these factors combine to make Maine a premier state for both birds and birders.
