Wednesday: On our second day at the coast we got up early and headed to the Edmunds Division of Moosehorn NWR that Carolyn had told us about. We hiked in for a while but it was really starting to rain so we decided we would come back some other time. We then headed over to Quoddy Head State Park. There is a beautiful lighthouse there. The visitor center didn’t open till 10:00 am. So we waited around and took pictures for about 30 minutes. It was really starting to rain and get ugly!
We did get 2 lifers - Common Eider and Black Guillemot
Common Eider - digiscoped with my little camera
Quoddy Head State Park is located in Lubec, Maine, on the eastern-most point of land in the United States.
[Offshore, the Bay of Fundy formed along the Fundy Fault, as Europe broke away from North America, and the Atlantic Ocean opened about 200 million years ago. Strong tidal currents between West Quoddy Head and Campobello Island drive what is said to be the largest whirlpool in the Western Hemisphere.]
