Clear, except for some ground fog.
A pair of Hooded Mergansers (Lophodytes cucullatus) was an unusual treat for this time of year.
Scouting below before a dive.
Even a sunrise of sorts.
January 16th. An afternoon walk at the marsh with high winds and turbulent clouds.
Note the white speck on the horizon.
Here it is at maximum telephoto.
A few Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) braving the weather. (I also heard an owl calling down towards Old Colchester Road.)
An unattended dog. A jogger passing by said he belonged to a local gym owner so at least he wasn't lost. Both headed back towards Route 85.
Same day, a mid-afternoon walk east from Cranberry Bog. Thirty seconds before taking this photo, there was a Red-tailed Hawk in that tree, darn it.
My destination was a long stretch of rock cut...
...where massive icicles form.
Back at my starting point. No hawk.
January 21st. Five degrees at 7:00 A.M.
