Eider Dive – Day 84

One of the most fascinating things to me about the diving ducks…

Is the different ways they dive; each one so different.

This, is an Eider Dive.


So powerful, so elegant, they barely make a sound.

I could watch them for hours.  ❤

Two Stunning Views: Race Point Light and a Sleepy Lady Eider – Day 83

My focus of this past week’s trip to PTown was, indeed, the BIRDS!

But I also got to see some truly beautiful spots, with great views.

Like the view of Race Point Lighthouse from Herring Cove Beach, something I had never seen before awaaay across the water.


The air smelled SO good out there on the water, and the sea looked so blue-blue.

Last night I posted a photo of a stunning Eider drake at MacMillan Wharf.

And here, tonight, is one of the Lady Eiders I met there, too.


She was especially kind to give me a really close look at her gorgeous feathers, so many different layers of black, white and rich reddish-brown.

I thought she looked a bit on the sleepy side, almost as if the sea was gently rocking her to sleep.

It made me wish I could join her…  😉


Can you see now, why I believe that the Ladies are every bit as gorgeous as the Gents??  ❤

Eider Drake of PTown, Man of Mystery – Day 82

A special moment shared with a very special Eider drake… on a recent trip to MacMillan Wharf in PTown.

I could have stayed there all day, but was on a time crunch.

I had other images that showed this charming fellow’s eye more clearly, but I loved this one for that “air of mystery”…


Eider Amusement – Day 3

One of my constant companions during the winter months here on the Cape, there’s so much to love about Eiders.

Such color variety, feeding animation and whimsy against a cold, still backdrop of wintry skies and seas.


Right here, right in front of me, whenever I want to drop by for a visit. ❤
