Long-tailed Duck (male, non-breeding plumage).

Hiked the hill in morning. Warmer, slight breeze, still a lot of snow cover. Eight species, no great photos.

This breezy, warmish afternoon dog and I took to the breakwater. A few extra species out there—including a handsome male Long-tailed Duck.

Sea Birds

Black Guillemot (non-breeding plumage), Rockland Breakwater, Rockland, Maine, 15 February 2019.
Black Guillemot (non-breeding plumage).

Warm day. Fifties (F), seems like (though I forgot to check for sure). Rained early, and I had a dentist appointment, so dog and I didn’t hit the hill until early afternoon. Nothing much up there then, so we also hiked the breakwater.

Plenty of seabirds out. Guillemots, grebe, scoter, eiders, gulls, long-tailed ducks, etc. Spotted a couple sunning seals also.

Odd, perhaps, but winter is my favorite season to hike the breakwater in.
