Common Eider - Rachel Carson Reserve, Beaufort, NC - 6/7/10

Hi All,

The great 2009/2010 Common Eider invasion of the southeast continues! Today a first-year male Common Eider was relocated at Rachel Carson Reserve in the harbor area of Beaufort, North Carolina.

Many Common Eiders were seen this past fall, winter, and spring on southeastern coasts. The first one was reported on 11/6/09 near the Florida-Georgia Border, 2 were reported in Georgia at virtually the same time and on it went from there. Common Eiders were seen as far south as Miami on the east coast, and at Captiva Island on Florida's west coast! I suppose they didn't quite make it to Key West and the Dry Tortugas after all.

Good Near Georgia Birding!
