Birding in the Rangely Lakes, Maine Area Part1

I'm still really behind so I've probably lost most of my regular followers.  Too much going on in the summer to post regularly.  Too busy birding.  Hopefully they all come back.

Anyway this is a continuation of my Maine trip.  After leaving Machais Seal Island, I drove 5 hours west to the Rangeley Lakes Region for some birding with the Brookline Bird Club.  Excellent trip and really fun group of people!  Got plenty of life birds and some fairly decent photos.  Without further ado!

I'll have more of the photos from climbing Saddleback Mountain and some of the other wild critters encounted during the trip in my next post.  Enjoy.
