Maine’s Puffins on the Rebound

There’s good news on the Maine coast! Atlantic puffins and three species of terns – including the endagered roseate tern – have come back to breed in record numbers on former nesting islands. Sea Bird biologists working for the National Audubon Society counted 4,500 pairs of common, artic, and roseate terns on the five islands they currently manage, as well as 38 pairs of puffins at two recently re-established colony sites.
