Birding Maine – Meadow and Marsh at the Wells Reserve

Hundreds of species of birds have been identified at the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve. During my visit in early September, I wondered which ones I could tick off.

I had been to the Wells Reserve once before in late May, en route to my sister’s graduation in upstate New York. Though I didn’t have much time to meander through the seven miles of trails, I discovered a plethora of neotropical songbirds that had descended to breed. Their meadow is specifically managed for songbirds (and is not mowed from May through August), and there I spotted my very first Bobolink.
