Abstract

"Talk of Maine" piece about scientists like Rebecca Holberton and Adrienne Leppold who study songbird migration in the Gulf of Maine. They estimate that between 250,000 and 500,000 songbirds use the Maine coast and islands as stopover points when they migrate south from Canada in the fall. Their research comes at a crucial time, as wind energy projects and land development put increasing pressure on habitats that are important to wildlife, while climate change is impacting the boreal species that pass through Maine from the arctic regions.
