St. Albans Wildlife Management Area Professional Review and Guide

"St. Albans Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is a hidden gem, not advertised and basically unknown except to a few local birders. Those making the effort to visit will find many rewards. Except for October and November hunting seasons, and this mostly on Saturday (Sunday hunting is prohibited in Maine), the WMA is bereft of human presence. Waterbirds predominate here.

Ducks include Wood Duck, Blue-winged Teal, Hooded Merganser, Ring-necked Duck, Common Goldeneye, Mallard, and Black Duck. Some interesting species observed here in the past include Marsh Wren, American Coot, Common Moorhen, Least Bittern, Green-backed Heron, Spotted Sandpiper, Sora Rail, and Virginia Rail. More likely, though, are American Bittern, Great Blue Heron, Red-winged Blackbird, Osprey, Canada Goose, and Common Grackle. Forest birds frequent the upland habitat."

Beginning in mid-May and continuing through June, breeding waterfowl keep the marsh alive with activity. Summer is relatively quiet, but the fall migration in September and October bring the marsh back to life.
