Maine Audubon Naturalist's June Almanac

I thought I'd start a new post for each month. As a member of Maine Audubon, I get the quarterly "Habitat" magazine which lists three months worth of Almanac tidbits. Here is the Naturalist's Almanac for June:

June 3 Harbor Seal pups will come to shore to rest. Give them space - their moms are probably nearby.
June 10 Alewives are making their annual migrations from the ocean up rivers to spawn.
June 11 Look for Common Eider ducklings along Maine's coast. Females will gather their young in groups called creches.
June 21 Today marks the Summer Solstice.
June 25 Are you seeing baby birds around? Report them to the Maine Bird Atlas!
