Subject: [Maine-birds] Spring Point Shoreway, So. Portland: Ruddy Ducks & BCNH's
Late this afternoon along the Spring Point Shoreway on the SMCC campus,
near the boat-mooring area between Spring Point & Cushing Point there were
3 RUDDY DUCKS close to shore near some Eiders and Canada Geese. Also 2
BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERONS (in subadult plumate) flew in and landed near
the docks. One of them was escorted closely by one of the Osprey pair who
are making their nest on a pole sticking up out of the water. The Osprey
followed the Night Heron until it landed, then circled back to its nest
area.

Since the Spring Point Shoreway is not heavily birded (according to eBird
anyway), fo those unaware I should mention that this is a bona fide hotspot
for BCNH's during the summer. Every evening I walked my dog there last
summer I would see several there skulking on the rocks at the small beaches
between the piers, or flying nearby.
