27 Feb. 2017....
A short, 3-hour transit from Southwest Harbor to Stonington (taking one of our boats over to be re-engined). Clear, sunny, SW wind but a 4-6 ft. sea and heavy spray in more open waters prevented some birding. Total distance 25 miles.
The usual Herring and Great Black-backed Gulls
133 Long-tailed Ducks
12 Common Eider
31 Surf Scoter
4 Red-necked Grebes
8 Common Loons
14 Black Guillemots
2 Dovekies, both between the east entrance to Stonington Harbor and Russ Island.

We have updated our webpage with new nature and family pictures.
