A true Maine Christmas tree (note the star)
I saw a lot of beautiful Long-Tailed Ducks as well as Common Eiders in the rough seas around the lighthouse park.

Next stop was The Cliff House on Bald Head Cliff in Cape Neddick Maine. I had read on line that this was a good stop for checking out ocean ducks, particularly in winter months. Since I had never been here before, I thought I'd give it a try. I couldn't pass up this little shack covered with buoys on my way there.
From Bald Head Cliff, I could see large flocks of distant ocean-going ducks, a good majority of which were Common Eiders.
Next stop: The Marginal Way, Ogunquit, Maine
Harlequin Duck (male)
On the 3rd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: 3 Harlequin Ducks!
another Maine Christmas tree!
I thought these kids must have been from the Midwest! They had to get in the water!
Today, the weathervanes were catching my eye:
