Lesser Scaup at Thomas Point.

I started at Possum Point, and waited awhile to see if any colors would materialize. After about ten minutes, it started to look promising, so I stayed long enough to get a few decent images.

Thomas Point was deserted, the weather was mild and the bay nearly flat. Unfortunately, the birds stayed  some distant out, and I didn’t really get much. I did find a few birds in the coves on the way out.

I stopped at my friend’s house, and there was a lot of birds in good light, so I stayed awhile.
