Abstract

Stratton Island in Saco Bay is home to a cormorant colony, a much-maligned bird. The National Audubon Society assigns wardens to live on Stratton from late spring through the fall to monitor these and other migrant species. Double-crested Cormorant populations are declining in Maine, though the state still holds the largest nesting population on the U.S. East Coast. With details on the birds, which the author sketched and photographed.
