I tried Quiet Waters this morning just for a change of pace. I’ve had good luck there in years past, but today was a bust.
I went straight to Thomas Point, and it was about the same, but some birds were in much closer and I got some decent images.
I finished up at my friend’s house on Thomas Point Road, where many birds hang out in hopes of getting fed by the locals.
Happy New Year!

Female Canvasbacks aren’t as showy, but they have their own beauty.
You need good light to get the most from a Scaup.
If you look carefully through the flocks of Canvasbacks, you may find a Redhead.
There’s always a few Tundra Swans at my friend’s house.
Several Long Tailed Ducks were near the point.
Many Surf Scoters were feeding at the point.
This Common Goldeneye was qiuite close to shore, and I got her as she scurried away.
It’s fun to watch Buffleheads search for a meal.
