Maine Bird Atlas

Maine Breeding Bird Atlas

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is midway through a 5-year survey to inventory the state's breeding and wintering birds.

You don’t need to be a birding expert to provide valuable observations to the Maine Bird Atlas project! All records are helpful, from residents and visitors alike.

To get started on the winter atlas, visit the Maine Bird Atlas website. Every sighting helps Maine's bird conservation efforts. Sharing your sightings is easy!

Winter atlas surveys are currently underway. They are particularly easy, since most birds are common year-round residents, easy to recognize. They are joined by a handful of birds coming down from Canada in the colder months.
