Subject: [Maine-birds] Re: Eurasian Wigeon - St. George, 1/12

A male northern pintail was also present with the mallards this morning (1/13) at 9:00. Was feeding on the lawn near the overturned boat (basically behind the fire department) before the group then flew down to the water.

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.
