Common Eider (Somateria mollissima) - 19Dec2015
The Common Eider is a bird I know well. My brother lives in Maine so I have seen the many variations in plumage these birds offer. However in NC I have only seen a few and they were all brown and drab birds, so for now I will have to post this chocolatey bird that I met yesterday at the end of Jeanette's Pier.
