Maine, mid-February '23

Red-breasted Merganser

After a month in New England, we've been back home in Old England for a few days now, and while I have brief opportunities to rattle through the memory card I should grasp them.... starting with a few from Maine, where we had a wonderful days with our old, ex-pat friends Kat and George (and Indigo, and many dogs, chickens etc).

We'd had it planned long in advance, and as it turned out, our timing was almost unbelievable - detailed in full previously, in this post - but the giant beast below had something to do with that thrilling serendipity.... just to add to the story, incredibly it hasn't been seen since. There's luck, and then there's luck.
Steller's Sea-eagle, near Georgetown, Maine. Yikes. 

It was cold, it was beautiful, it was a lot of fun, and we wish it was longer; but a few days with family on Plum Island, Massachusetts beckoned, and so we were on our way after four days and nights.
