Cape Spear Delights
There were many Black Guillemots, Long-tailed Ducks, a mixed scoter group and this one female Common Eider. This eider caught the light and looked quite yellowish as it steadily swam from North to South and rounded the point.
Everyday, Cape Spear treats with something different and often special. The waters are often dotted with fishing boats and large vessels. Beyond birders, there is always a steady flow of people who just want to sit and look seaward for no other reason than to drink in the rugged beauty of the entrance way to the harbour of St. John's.
