THIS COPY IS HIDDENOdiorne Point State Park is a fantastic destination for bird enthusiasts, both expert and novice. With dense vegetation in the woodlands and wetlands and sweeping vistas of the salt marsh and Gulf of Maine, it’s no wonder Odiorne is a birding hot-spot. Once you bird here, you’ll want to come back again and again!
