Scouting is something we do year round. Granted, you may not find birds in the same place as the year progresses but it is always a good idea to stay in tune with bird movement.
Last week we took a cruise around some of the outer islands in Machias Bay, Libby, Ram, and Cross Island to name a few. It was great to observe tons of eiders while wearing a t-shirt as opposed to heavy duck gear!
The resident birds looked great and the numbers were healthy as always, here in DownEast Maine.
