The American Eider in Maine

Metadata Updated: May 12, 2018

The American eider, Maine's only breeding sea duck, is known to have nested on 215 coastal islands of the State in 1976. In Maine, eiders seem to prefer to nest on relatively small, uninhabited islands. The numbers of eiders on the Maine coast have fluctuated greatly since colonial days. The major threat to breeding populations of eiders is human disturbance during the nesting season. Criteria for determining significant nesting areas for the eider duck in Maine are defined and a historical review of eider duck nesting on the Maine coast is presented in this report as well as general management recommendations and an evaluation of eider duck nesting areas for inclusion on the “register of critical areas”.
