Long Tailed Duck at Thomas Point

The Sandy Point sunrise continues to disappoint.  Cloudy, mildly foggy mornings seem to be the worst conditions.

I went straight to Thomas Point afterward, and it was fairly barren, but a Long Tailed hen was a nice surprise. A couple of loons and a fishing gull provided some decent photos.
