Event Format: 

Maine is home to several species of secretive marsh birds: rails, bitterns, herons, and snipe. Even the most focused birder may have trouble finding them amongst the cattails and reeds, UNLESS they participate in special surveys for the Maine Bird Atlas!  Learn what makes these birds unique, why they still remain a mystery to most scientists, and how to hear or see one and make it count for the Maine Bird Atlas.

Danielle D'Auria is a wildlife biologist who works in the Bird Group of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. She focuses on understanding statewide populations of colonial wading birds, secretive marsh birds, black terns, loons, and other rare water birds.
