Prospect Lake

Not much time spent birding with the weather and compounded by cold wet feet (bad idea wearing sneakers):, a quick stop by the Lake had its best moment of 9 HOODED MERGANSERS that came out from the reeds near Lamppost 249/ Well Drive. In close proximity, such delight !

Shovelers and Ruddies galore, didn't mind the snow obviously (they relished it) with a lone PIED BILLED GREBE.

No XC skiing tonight: too mushy and the ground snow cover has to be 3 inches for smooth gliding.But for ducks ,its smooth sailing.

Cold frigid temps tonight..watch your step and check those feeders and winter's delight.
