Cold Cape Spear
I haven't been birding a lot lately because birding has seemed to slow down. Their are not many rare birds around and its pretty cold around here. Never the less on Saturday I went out to Cape Spear to look for some birds. Their was loads of wind and it was blowing so hard it almost knocked over my scope. Their is usually quite a bit if bird action here in the woods on the way up to the cape but today it looked dead. No drumming of woodpeckers on the trees, no song of chickadees and no finches. At the cape though it was pretty good. Two bald eagles were soaring around, many long tailed ducks, a few eiders and some purple sandpipers. Their was 3 King eiders as well. I went down a slippery slope and wiped out. Ouch!
