Northern Shrike Flanked Blackhead Road
Nevertheless, I did see a large group of Common Goldeneye and less Common Mergansers yesterday. They were the first for me this winter. Sea birds are sometimes colorful and are very active but often present difficulty with viewing thembecause they are often too far from shore. Any activity along the shoreline drives them even farther away.
And...so the New Year begins today. Hoping that the small birds in the city were not driven away by the fireworks, I may get our for an hour or so this morning to see what I can see. Rain is in the forecast today but I can put up with that as rain on New Year's Day is a good omen. Happy New Year!
