Well the sun came out and did it's thing - warming and melting the snow. Although it's not making much headway at this rate. We decided to go for a drive and see if we could find any ducks or other interesting birds around the wharves after lunch. Just a break for a few hours. Our road looked good but as we progressed down the road it wasn't so great. We made it to the Gunning Cove Wharf and it was much better going back then getting there. Then decided to head to Sandy Point and Jordan Bay. I was a little disappointed, thought we might spy some Guillemots or Grebes but none to be found. Lots of Loons, a Merganser, Gulls, Mallards, Black Ducks, Common Eiders, Golden Eyes, a Bald Eagle and a Turkey Vulture (no photo opt for that one). Had the Sharp shinned Hawk fly into the yard after we got home. I was standing on the deck with Lexi watching the Chickadees and my camera in the house, he left hungry but is an awesome bird to watch. It was still nice to get out and away even if it was just a short jaunt. Maybe next weekend the weather will be better and we can escape for a day.
Enjoy your day!
