Guide Book
The companion Maine Birding Trail guide book is The Official Guide to More Than 260 Accessible Sites, many of them off the beaten track and away from crowds. The guide features over 100 new maps, secrets for finding sought-after species, and advice on trip-planning. It includes bonus chapters on two nearby Canadian islands: Campobello and Grand Manan. As new public lands and private trusts have become available to birders over the last decade, this guide brings site descriptions of Maine birding into the 21st century. The Maine Birding Trail Official Guide is now available through all major booksellers, including:
Barnes and Noble
