On this busy holiday weekend I somehow managed to steal an hour to go down to the shore. Marinas can be a great place during the winter to get a close-up look at certain birds.
One of these geese is definitely not like the other!
It was a nice surprise to come across a snow goose which aren't all that common around here.
Birds like this American Coot like to hang around marinas in Old Saybrook.
I was especially excited to get such a close look at a Surf Scoter which are usually much further out on the water. I'm glad I squeezed in this little birding excursion. It turned out to be like an early Christmas gift. Merry Christmas and happy holiday to all!
Rare goose indeed. But not in North Dakota we're Ive seen ten thousand in a stubble field and waterfowl hunters must put our hundred of various type of decoys to get their attention...:)
