Abstract

"Explorations." Islands of the Gulf of Maine, born out of granite from volcanic explosions, are seabird nesting grounds. Islands like ours concentrate more vertebrate life than any other habitat. Four species of alcids nest on islands in the Gulf of Maine: the Atlantic puffin, the razorbill, the common murre, and the black guillemot. Their great predator is the herring gull. Also frequent are common terns, mixed terns, and roseates. Details.
