Comments:
This was a tour for the Acadia Birding Festival. The tour was billed as "MDI Hot Spots," so we chose to focus on the eastern half of Mount Desert Island. The participants in my van had already seen Black-bellied Whistling Duck, so we chose to look for birds in other locales. Specific locales will be given in the comments section for each species. I did not bother to tally numbers for this outing.
