    "Electro-Bird" :)

    by travelfrosch Written Jul 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: We were unable to identify this unique bird, but we could identify its call. It sounded electronic, like something from a 1980's video game. As a result, we dubbed it "Electro-Bird."

    If anybody knows what type of bird this is, please let me know and I'll update this tip. :-)

    Fulmars

    Favorite thing: Another variety of sea bird you'll see is the Fulmar. We spotted a few on a nearby rock. Unfortunately, my camera is not suited for birdwatching, but I still got a couple of decent shots.

    Note: I'm not a birdwatcher. If I mis-identified this bird, please email me and I'll change it immediately. ;-)

    Picnic Spot

    View from the picnic table

    Fondest memory: Just above the ferry dock, we noticed a picnic table. While we didn't bring a picnic, we sat there for awhile and enjoyed the fjord panorama. This is certainly a perfect spot for a budget meal... if the weather's warm enough, that is...

    Eider Ducks

    Favorite thing: On the island, you'll find a tremendous number of Eider Ducks. The males are quite distinctive, with black and white markings. Certainly a great find for bird watchers.
