In 2009, he completed development of the Maine Birding Trail and has authored a guidebook for the state, published by Down East Books.
Duchesne currently writes a weekly birding column for the Bangor Daily News and a monthly Woods & Waters column for Bangor Metro magazine. He also hosts a weekly radio show on 92.9FM in Bangor called Bob Duchesne's Wild Maine.
