Subject: [Maine-birds] Eurasian Wigeon - St. George, 1/12
I took a little detour this afternoon to check out a Eurasian Wigeon reported on eBird yesterday by Gail Presley. The sharp looking drake was continuing in Ripley Creek which flows into Tenants Harbor, St. George. The bird was associating with a large group of Mallards until being flushed by a young Bald Eagle when it relocated further out in Tenant’s Harbor. Best views were had by walking down Ripley Creek Road a short way and I’d recommend parking at the creek crossing along Rt 131 to not cause congestion on that narrow road.

Good birding,
