About This Project

Maine has historically provided vast habitat for forest-breeding birds. Numerous species that breed in North American boreal forests exhibit southern range margins in Maine. As the state's climate warms during the 21st century, climatic models suggest that high elevation and eastern coastal zones may provide cool microhabitats where boreal breeding birds can persist. This project will address current inventory gaps by characterizing the forest songbird communities on twelve Maine islands.
