July 13, eagle over Little Roberts Island,
posted January 26,
Greetings from Vinalhaven,
some old news here, as usual, more photos than caption.
The aim is to justify my camera time and to make you interested in heading to Vinalhaven to catch a ride around aboard my boat Skua, maybe to Seal Island, where many of these photos were taken at or on the way to.
Or maybe around Isle au Haut,
Aloha y bueno suerte
Some interesting photos I hope there is a lot going on out there.
We had some days out on the water this summer
yes I got a bit blogged down so I have some up catching to do.
I will catchup, coming soon Aug 1, 2019, "The Day Of the Sunfish"
July 13, 2019 afternoon trip to Seal.
An adult Eagle over Little Roberts Island
the Double Crested Cormorants there flush and whorl, staying together an in the air, the tip of little Roberts and Otter Island beyond
gulls pursuing adult eagle, you can see the empty cormorant nests and a gull still not flushed who's attention may be on the empty cormorant nests.
some of the cormorants sweep by as the eagle passes over.
getting close to Seal island you start to see Puffins
Puffins and Razorbill ashore on Seal island.
