Don Reimer will be at the Project Puffin Visitor Center on Wednesday, Aug. 4 at 5 p.m. to give a presentation about what types of birds can be seen here in Maine during the summer.

Maine has roughly 230 species of breeding birds, and it is possible to see 400 different species at various times of the year. Some birds are year-round residents while others arrive annually from the tropics to nest in the state’s marshes, uplands and boreal forest regions. From raptors to songbirds and shorebirds, the talk will examine Reimer’s original photos of local birdlife. Some unexpected birds can also be present during the summer season.

Tips on identification of migrating shorebirds and their unique migration strategies and habitat requirements will be included in this brief overview of Maine’s summer bird populations. To reserve a seat call 596-5566.
