There are plenty of birds to see in the winter, especially down at the shoreline.
I like to see some of the winter diving ducks. It was nice to see this male and female Bufflehead paired up.
Another common site sight this time of the year are the mergansers like this Hooded and also Red-breasted, and Common Mergansers. There's been some years when I've been able to see 100 species in Connecticut just in the month of January.
Unfortunately, I don't have the kind of time this year to see so may but I would be happy if we could just start seeing temperatures in the double digits so we could enjoy the ones I do see in a little more comfort!
