Friday, November 28, 2008

Sunny, hardly any clouds; light breeze from west. A dozen northern shovelers in small groups along south shore, overlapping with scores of mallards and a dozen coots. Fresh ice forming in southwest bay and along western shore. Pileated woodpecker flitting among trees along western path and feasting on berries, red head brilliant in the sun. A couple of crows in the trees; one tern or gull in the air. Clots of bright green algae floating near the border of the ice and bound into it.
