Roger Robb called me a while ago to mention that he saw the eider today and was amazed at the thousands of birds off Fossil Point and asked me to post it. I may have understated how amazing it was out there on Sunday. He said there were a thousand bufflehead alone. Another thousand gulls. There was a thousand scoters when I was there Sunday also. Hundreds of Brant. Lotsa birds. He was able to find the eider which was still on the closer edge of the duck slick. All these birds make it more difficult to find the eider but the huge number of birds feeding on the herring spawn is quite amazing to see!
