Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Kittery, Maine

After the pelagic, we birded around the Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, Maine area. We drove across the bridge and border to Maine, where we walked around Fort Foster Park. We walked out on the pier that we had seen from the harbor where we began our pelagic, over in New Castle, NH.

We then headed toRye, NH where we birded at Odiorne Point State Park. The sun was setting, and it was kind of magical time of day. Our coolest sighting there was definitely the red fox we found snoozing on a rock not far off the trail.

I found a great vantage point to relax and contemplate the day's events
