Abstract

"The Talk of Maine" piece on expert birders, Wendy Howes of Wilton and Wally Summer of Canaan, who attempted to break the official American Birding Association Big Day record for Maine, set in 1993 by Lysle Brinker from the Belgrade area, and his team. The author accompanied the two birders as they traveled to numerous sites in Maine on a tight, pre-arranged schedule in late spring. They ultimately identified a total of 140 birds by sight and/or sound, falling short of the record, which was 163.
