Maine starts ambitious bird watching project
PORTLAND (WGME) -- If you're interested in bird watching, the state needs your help for an ambitious project.
For the first time in decades, the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is collecting data on species that are breeding and spending their winters in Maine.
The information will be collected from 2018 to 2022, and be used for a "Maine Bird Atlas," that will be published online and in a book.
Experts say they hope to learn about which species are here, and which ones may need more help.
