Common Goldeneye at Thomas Point.

I managed only a short trip to Thomas Point on this gray morning as I had work to do.  A Common Eider was seen there a couple of days ago, so there were several birders looking hard, but it hadn’t been found when I left.

The good news is that there was a good variety of species, so it may be a better year than last year.
