About 1000 Steller´s Eiders winter in West-Estonian coastal waters. In Early spring they come closer to shore and are easier to see. At the same time woodpeckers, owls and grouses are getting active. Capercaillie, Black Grouse and Hazel Hen are lekking. Owls start to hoot to declare their territories. Woodpeckers are drumming.
The best time for sighting all this natural life is at the end of March and first part of April.
