Eiders, that is... a flock of seven surface searchers sitting on the surface of the bay this evening. I watched them for a while, thinking it odd (or perhaps not) that there would be six males and one female.
I was born in Ellsworth and grew up in Winter Harbor, Maine and have lived here most of my life. I received my Bachelor's (1973) and Master's (2005) degrees from the University of Maine. I am a Maine boy through and through.
