Rangeley Lake State Park is popular primarily for camping and swimming, but a trail winds along the edge that yields many of Maine’s common songbirds. Mixed forest habitat shelters many species of warblers: black-throated green, black-throated blue, chestnut-sided, blackburnian, pine, magnolia, Nashville, black-and-white, northern parula, American redstart, and common yellowthroat. Blue-headed and red-eyed vireos are widespread. Woodpeckers include downy, hairy, yellow-bellied sapsucker, northern flicker, and pileated. The understory is home to hermit thrushes, veeries, and winter wrens.
