Peregrine Falcon at Thomas Point.

It was very cold again  this morning, so I grabbed my ski pants and boots to take a look at Thomas Point. The hope was that more interesting species of ducks would have moved in, but it wasn’t to be.

There was an abundance of birds to make up for the lack of variety, including a first ever at Thomas Point Peregrine. The ice cover is increasing, but there’s a warming trend in play. so I expect big changes in a few days.
