Howard L. Mendall Wildlife Management Area—Sandy Stream Professional Review and Guide

"Sandy Stream is managed by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. The marsh is composed mostly of short grasses, and although it looks as though you couldn’t walk on it, the surface is amazingly firm. However, little narrow tidal channels weave their way throughout the marsh and are often obscured by vegetation. Use extreme caution as you walk the marsh—the channels are often several feet or more deep.

A key bird, Nelson’s Sharp-tailed Sparrow, breeds at Mendall Marsh. Other birds of interest include Common Merganser, Sora and Virginia Rail, Common Snipe, Least Sandpiper, Semipalmated Sandpiper, and Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs. Osprey and Bald Eagle are often present out over the stream, as are a variety of ducks, Common Loon, and Canada Goose. Several kinds of sparrows inhabit the low growth along the access road."
