A sleety Sunday


We headed out east today...................


A typical quiet winter day but it was above zero and we got a mixture of sleet/snow/hail.

The regular Stellers Sea Eagle was there but high up the hillside or in the sky................



It was a bit windy and the sea was really rough so there were a few birds in the ports at least. 8 species of gull and various ducks including Red-breasted Merganser...............


And Harlequin Duck...................


There has been a lot of snow this winter so this rea to the east of town is handy because for some reason the snow is less severe and the roads are dry and clear.............

  1. Harlequin Duck is quite wonderful. It seems like they gave a child a white duck and some markers and this is the result!

    1. But rather difficult to photograph such a high contrast bird!
