MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND ---- MIGRANT BIRDS

SITTING ON THE ATLANTIC FLYWAY, ABOUT 10 MILES OFF THE COAST, M.S.I. HOSTS A FULL RANGE OF MIGRATING BIRDS, BOTH NIGHT-FLYING AND DAY-FLYING.
MANY BIRDS DROP OUT OF THE FLIGHTS TO REST AND FEED DURING THE DAY. SOME STAY FOR A FEW HOURS WHILE A FEW WILL HANG AREOUND FOR SEVERAL DAYS
MANY OF THESE BIRDS CONGERGATE AROUND THE LIGHTHOUSE AND LIGHTKEEPER'S DWELLING AT NIGHT.
DURING THE NIGHT FLIGHTS, THE HOUSE WOULD FILL WITH BIRDS IF WINDOWS ARE LEFT OPEN.

ALTHOUGH THEY WILL PERMIT CLOSE APPROACH, CAUTION IS REQUIRED TO AVOID FURTHER STRESSING THESE BIRDS, MANY OF WHICH ARE EHXAUSTED NEAR TO DEATH.
THEREFORE, PHOTOGRAPHIC QUALITY HAS OFTEN BEEN SACRIFICED TO AVOID HARMING THE BIRDS.
