Tundra Swans at Thomas Point

The weather has been good enough, with a few days of cold, followed by milder stuff right now. I’m still hanging out on this side of the bridge, but I may cross the bridge soon, as the winter ducks come in. Have I mentioned that the Bay Bridge is being repaired? This limits the times you can cross without traffic delays.

Lots of Swans and ducks are here now, but the Thomas Point ducks aren’t coming in close enough for photos. Quiet Waters has been a major disappointment. I’ve been several times without seeing much of note.
