Asian visitor leaves Nova Scotia to spend some time in Massachusetts

Scores of bird watchers, including our own Mary Ellen, flocked to Dighton today to try to catch a glimpse of a Steller's sea eagle, which normally is only spotted in Siberia and along the coasts of China and Japan.
The state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife says the bird, hanging out along the Taunton River, is likely the same one that has been spotted from Texas to, most recently, Nova Scotia as it's peregrinated across the New World over the past couple of years.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
No offense to Dightonians but
No offense to Dightonians but WTF are you. Google maps didn't even bother to put the town name on the map.
Follow the link
Click the blue link that Adam conveniently left for us and it will take you right to Dighton.
No offense to Bostonians but...
...are city people really this helpless?
Most city folk are unable to read invisible ink. I followed the link and could not find Dighton. There was just a red outline indicating the Town is between Route 44, Sweet Knoll State Park, and Somerset . I'm sure Dighton is in there somewhere.
Did you zoom in?
Two clicks on the + and the name appears.
That worked! Dightonians are pretty cool people. I saw a story about how all the Dighton school bus drivers dressed up like 'Elf on the Shelf' yesterday. The kids loved it.
My guess is that the Steller's sea eagle is looking for Mary Ellen.
