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.
