Backyard Birds of Maine

     As on of the least populated and heavily forested states in the country, Maine is an ideal landscape for an incredible abundance of wildlife, including of species of birds.  On the 100 acres of thickly wooded land that Larry Chadwick calls his backyard, it's not uncommon to find samples of pheasants, turkeys, grouse, grebes, geese, and ducks.  But up at the bird feeders that Larry tends on his back porch, he gets a daily, arms-length view of some of the most beautiful eastern woodland bird species you could hope to see.
