South Freeport Boat Landing is a working dock on the Harraseeket River. It looks across at Wolf Neck and downriver toward Winslow Park. In winter, it is one of the more likely places in Maine to find Barrow’s goldeneyes, often close to the docks. It is not unusual to find common and Barrow’s goldeneyes near each other for easy comparison. Long-tailed ducks and red-breasted mergansers also favor these waters. Large concentrations of Common Eiders are usually present in the distance.
