King Eider (Somateria spectabilis) - 30Mar2017

This amazing bird was in the Cape Cod channel in MA back in 2017 and I happened to be in Boston for a work trip.  So naturally I drove down and crushed it.  The flock of eiders was racing against the channel which was flowing at a really fast rate and by positioning myself 40 or so yards up the bank and staying very still, the flock approached and came to within spitting distance.
