Wings Flapping On The Ocean | Common Eider | Maine
A Common Eider is a large duck that lives at sea.
I do not live near the ocean. Therefore seeing a Common Eider was one of the many fun features of one of our vacations.
We enjoy going places where we can explore nature.
One of those places is Acadia National Park in Maine.
There are so many amazing natural features to enjoy in Acadia.
I honestly wasn’t expecting to see too much wildlife, but I try to always be prepared.
It was so fun to see the Common Eider. I had seen them there once before on a previous visit a decade ago.
However that trip was a totally different time of year. So I wasn’t sure if I would see any of the Common Eider this time of year.
But then, while we were out exploring, there they were. A flock of Common Eider out on the ocean currents.
