Birds and Creatures of Mere Point Boat Launch

Now that the weather is nicer I find myself walking across the street to the mere Point Boat Launch several times a week. I never know what kind of birds or creatures I will find when I go there. Just last weekend I saw four seals in the bay and a whale breaching down towards the point and in the open waters of Casco Bay! I did not know the water here was deep enough for whales! Mere Point Bay is now an eBird Hotspot, so if you come to Maine, come on down and count the birds here. If you are an eBirder there are several eBird Hotspots in the area, including Rossmore and Mere Point Roads, Wharton Point, and Brunswick Landing. These are just a few of the birds and creatures I saw while walking there on June 2nd.

Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
