I will never forget this day, never thought I would see these beautiful birds in my lifetime. This planet, Wonderful! As my small trip comes to a end. Best Wishes to new friends we met along our travels, and I finally had the opportunity to see this bird. Looking forward to new destinations in the future. Happy Travels! I have a passion to see the birds of our world. I apologize for this obsession! Planning trips to interesting places, will be posting new destinations in the future. Best Wishes. I will return to this beautiful area of the country. While I have posted a few pictures of these wonderful birds. It was my dream to see them in my lifetime. I want to see much more of the beautiful wildlife this world has to offer. Traveling is a great joy, we all have destinations we want to see. Mine are small, but magnificent to me. Wake up you sleepy heads, drove all the way from Ohio to see you. The reason for traveling to Maine. I simply had to see one of these creatures in the wild. Took a boat out of the harbor to Eastern Egg Rock. The good folks from Audubon, Project Puffin were also there to explain their attempts to establish a colony this far south in Maine. If you would like to learn more please visit the Project Puffin website. Life is wonderful! I want to post this picture of a lighthouse in Maine. I cannot give you more information on the lighthouse. I will travel back to this area of the country shortly. Will learn more! However I can tell you there is a bird at the top of it. Oh well, we all have our obsessions. Taking a little break, will thank all of your beautiful photos shortly. Thank You for all of your support over the past years. William. Wonderful time in Maine, trying not to post too many pictures. But I will lose that battle today. TripAdvisor's pick for the #1 Botanical Gardens in the USA Monarch butterfly. at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens
