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.
