These are some birds I photographed during the summer 2017, mostly in midcoast Maine. There were loons at Damariscotta Lake, shorebirds and wading birds at Popham Beach, Weskeag Marsh, and Pine Point / Scarborough. I have also included three photos of an uncommon Least bittern seen at Parker River NWR, Plum Island, northeast Massachusetts.
