King Eider Highlights Star Island Trip

This stunning drake King Eider, first spotted a week ago and re-found on our trip by Chris Borg, was the highlight of a recent day trip to Star Island at the Isles of Shoals. The spring migration is slowing down yet we had a wonderfully pleasant day on the island with a great group of people and a modest number of late migrating birds. Many thanks to Phil Brown who organized this trip and allowed some Merlin Wildlife Tours participants to join his Harris Center group. Phil and I will be co-leading a trip in September to another idyllic island, Monhegan, off the coast of Maine. Check out the tour schedule for more details.
