Merryspring Webinar: The State of Maine’s Birds


Bird advocate and writer Nick Lund will host a presentation titled “The State of Maine’s Birds” in an online webinar hosted by Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, March 29 at 12 p.m.

Maine’s bird populations are continually changing, according to Merryspring, in a news release. Bald eagles and wild turkeys nearly disappeared from Maine in the 1900s, but have since returned. While on the other hand, the numbers of American Kestrels, Tree Swallows and Evening Grosbeaks are declining. What are the causes of these changing numbers? In this presentation, Nick Lund will examine what has happened over the past few decades that has affected Maine’s bird populations.

Lund will discuss which species are disappearing, which are increasing, and what the future of Maine’s birds might be like.

Nick Lund is from Falmouth and is Maine Audubon’s Advocacy and Outreach Manager. He is the author of several books, including American Birding Association Field Guide to Maine Birdsand
The Ultimate Biography of Earthh.

This talk is part of the Online Winter Talk series at the Merryspring Nature Center, sponsored by Allen Insurance & Financial.
