Kennebunk Plains

The blueberry barrens and associated habitats support several species that are rare or endangered in Maine, including grasshopper sparrow, upland sandpiper, vesper sparrow, and horned lark. In late summer, the plains are filled with the spectacular purple blooms of the northern blazing star.

Over 1,000 acres are managed by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. See map.

    We plan to be first time visitors to the Maine Coast in late September. My husband is almost a life long bird photographer.

    Planning ahead, I thought I might ask for suggestions for places along the shore and in the fields, forests (?) where we might find opportunities perhaps to photograph birds we rarely see in the Naples/Estero area of the Gulf Coast.

    Any suggestions would be warmly received so that we can make the most of our time.
