Winter Sea Birds Have Arrived

Harlequin Ducks

Winter in Maine is long, cold and dark and for a birder spring migration seems a long way away.

But along the coast there are a lot of winter sea birds to keep us company.

Yesterday I saw my first Harlequin Ducks of the season (dozens and dozens of them).

My first Long-tailed Duck.

And my first White-winged Scoter.

There are still a few late migrates hanging around, including a Spotted Sandpiper and a Magnolia Warbler.
