Common Goldeneye at Thomas Point.

It’s been very cold here-low 2 digits, and freezing near shore, which cuts down on the numbers of water birds.

I’ve been to Thomas Point a few times, as it’s some distance out in the bay, and won’t freeze until it’s been very cold for a while.

In truth, there hasn’t been much to see, but it’s improving as it gets colder up North and those birds head South.

Today’s selection is the best it’s been in a while, and it may improve as the weather gets worse.
