We met the family at Blue Sea Lake on Saturday, and biked towards Messines, stopping for a picnic and a swim. We saw a few Mallards, the males entering eclipse plumage. We also saw the Bald Eagles nest, but no sign of the raptors.
We pushed on to Messines, while K&K returned to Blue Sea for their car. At the park in town, we saw a Song Sparrow and a couple of Red-eyed Vireos.
Early the next morning, the boys accompanied us on loon count. We only saw the Seagull Rock adult with a ball of fluff. but later saw another pair with a young at First Island. We did see two Bald Eagles, or maybe the same one twice. They seem to be not quite full adults.
