Day 3 - 3rd January 2016 - Canada Geese and a Chickadee

Little chilly out there this morning, some rain forecast for today. Birthday party to attend this afternoon for one of my great nephews. Other than that no special plans for the day. It's soon getting to the time when we need to put some more wood in the basement. So far we haven't use as much as most winters, but in a blink of an eye that can change.
A slow start to the day got us in town to do errands later than I expected. After, we took a run towards Lockeport, expecting some ducks or something interesting along the shorelines. East Jordan Breakwater yielded nothing - not even a Loon. The Back Harbour in Lockeport had a number of Canada Geese, some Black Ducks. Hooded Mergansers and Common Golden Eye were too far away for photos. Found some Chickadees and Golden Crowned Kinglets along the West Head Road. Nothing out of the ordinary. We made our way back home, was beginning to chill off and time to build a fire in the furnace.
Lots of Canada Geese at Lockeport.
We watched and watched but couldn't confirm there were anything but the regular ones. Was hoping for a rarity of some kind.
Nothing much left of this Queen Anne's Lace. I'm always amazed at how strong those stems must be to withstand the winds along the shore.
I don't think you can ever have too many Chickadees. The Golden Crowned Kinglets were too shy for photos.

Enjoy your day!
