Harlequin Duck at Nubble Light

Today’s expedition was to Nubble Light in York, Maine . . . a peninsula jutting into the ocean just short of a beautiful light house.

The location attracts seabirds in great numbers and occasionally something really rare.  

Today’s rarity was a couple King Eiders visible with a scope (one may have been a Common/King Eider Hybrid).

Got a nice photo of a Harlequin Duck swimming close to the parking lot . . . a difficult bird to photograph.
