A Winter’s Day

Northern Cardinal

Northern Cardinal

A dreary day today, but the birds sang in spite of the hovering clouds. I’ve been duck hunting on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay, but have been rather unsuccessful. El Nino has been keeping the gulf stream further north, giving us a milder winter and keeping the ducks further north.

I keep hoping and will continue to search. In the meantime, the garden birds will continue to enchant.

  1. Both lovely! I’ve started seeing small rafts of ducks in Marshy Creek at CBEC (Grasonville) with my binoculars. A few Tundra Swans have arrived there too. I was hoping today provided a little sunshine so I could slip over to see what all’s been arriving to date myself! πŸ™‚
