The Birds We Study
Although the primary focus of the Maine Nightjar Monitoring Project is, of course, nightjars, we ask volunteers to keep records of all the bird species they observe during their survey efforts. Such birds include owls, thrushes, shorebirds, and more. Click on the buttons below to view profiles of each species you are likely to encounter. Each profile includes recordings, photos, and descriptions of behaviors you may observe during the breeding season.
