Hooded Merganser at Thomas Point.

I spent an hour or so at Sandy Point yesterday, and about the same at Thomas Point this morning.

It’s really cold-in the twenties, and there’s enough wind to feel the effects. It’s amazing to watch these delicate-looking birds  blithely dabble and dive in the near freezing water.

There were lots and lots of birds, but mostly too far out for good images. Try as I might, I could only find the usual suspects, but I’ll keep looking.
