Abstract

Least, common, and arctic terns, decimated in the 19th century for use of their feathers to make hats, now compete with recreation and pollution for usable space along the Maine coast. Most live on Seal Island, Petit Manan, Matinicus Rock, and Eastern Egg Rock, making them more vulnerable to accident, disease, oil spills, and poisoned food. Many make annual migrations of 22,000 miles. Details.
