What is the plan?

Our aim is to publish regular blog posts about birds and their conservation, both in Maine and elsewhere. We plan to produce a whole range of content of interest for those of us who care about finding and observing birds, their biology and ecology, and the challenges they face. We hope to combine a mixture of scientific communication, bird identification, trip reports, book and gear reviews, and interviews with fascinating people, with the aim of promoting the understanding and enjoyment of birds.
