Bog Brook Wildlife Management Area Professional Review and Guide
"Bog Brook WMA, like so many other prime birding sites in Maine, is owned and managed by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (DIF&W). Great Blue Heron, Osprey, and Bald Eagle nest here, making Bog Brook Wildlife Management Area (WMA) a vitally important site. These large fish-eating birds are attracted by the flooded, dead timber, where fish commonly seek shade and shelter.
The impoundment hosts Common Loon, American Black Duck, Hooded Merganser, Wood Duck, and Ring-necked Duck. Common Snipe and Spotted Sandpiper frequent the edge habitat, and Northern Harrier fly over the impoundment. Red-winged Blackbird and Common Grackle sit in the shrubs alongside the impoundment, and Tree Swallow dart about, picking mosquitoes and blackflies out of the air."
