White Breasted Nuthatch at Quiet Waters.

Not too much variety lately. It’s gotten colder, so there may be more good ducks, grebes and loons soon. I’m going to have travel a little further soon, to keep up.

Thomas Point was mostly disappointing, and there wasn’t anything new at Quiet Waters. The weather wasn’t much help, with several inches of snow.
