It was really cold this morning (21), so I wore my ski pants and carried my gloves. I’m not as indifferent to cold as I used to be.
Cold brings the ducks, however, and a juvenile Mute Swan. A very surprising, very late Osprey was a treat as well.
A large flock of Ring-necked Ducks was cruising the lake.
Prior to this, the latest I’ve seen Ospreys was October 31.
This Robin seemed to be enjoying the sunshine.
This is the first time I’ve seen a Mute Swan at Artemesia.
This young buck let me get very close, and even ignored a nearby dog.
