Seabirds abound along the New England coastline in winter. The birding begins along the rocky shores of southern Maine to scan the mouth of the Piscataqua River for various sea ducks, loons, and grebes. In New Hampshire, more sea ducks, shorebirds, and alcids turn in the surf and hunt along the sandy shore and jetties. In the afternoon, search the Massachusetts salt marsh along the Merrimack River for dabbling ducks, songbirds, and birds of prey including Snowy Owls and Bald Eagles. Coastal birding is a great way to get out and enjoy a beautiful winter's day.
