Birds

Many species of birds live, year-round or seasonally, and nest in the Meduxnekeag watershed. Other seasonal residents nest elsewhere, as do species passing through on migration.  Some bird species have relatively stable populations; others appear to be increasing in numbers; still others appear to be in decline, although annual variations do not necessarily indicate long-term trends.

A few species appear to be extending their range into the watershed, with annual sighting, and in some cases successful nesting, records over several recent years.
