Petit Manan Point, Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge Professional Review and Guide

"Petit Manan Point is only one part of a larger system, which includes both coastal parcels and offshore islands. The system ranges over 200 miles of Maine’s rocky coast and comprises more than 7,000 acres. The complete list of key birds, too extensive to include here, is available at no charge from refuge headquarters. However, that only points out the great number of bird species seen here.

Highlights include Hermit and Swainson’s Thrush, Song Sparrow, and various warblers, including Nashville, Magnolia, Palm, and Blackthroated Green Warbler. Also expect to see Boreal Chickadee in the forested areas. Shorebirds seen along the mudflats can include Semipalmated, Least, and several other species of sandpiper; Black-bellied Plover; Short-billed Dowitcher; Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs; and Dunlin."
