The Center for Wildlife has entered the final phase of a major expansion in Maine

CAPE NEDDICK, Maine People looked out their windows during a recent downpour, and noticed something strange: small, penguin-like creatures roaming around their properties.

Curious and worried, some of them called the Center for Wildlife at Cape Neddick in York. It turned out that those strange birds were dovekies, a pelagic species known to breed in the Arctic and far from the coast and far from land. Strong winds on Monday’s storm forced the dovekeys to the ground.

They were great, Kristen Lamb, the center’s executive director, said in an interview after the storm. They live on the coast, mostly in the sea, and they never come on land. People notice them in their yards or in their parking lots, and they know something is wrong.
