Yesterday I was there at dawn, some of the birds hadn't woken up yet; check out the ice/frost on the WW scoters...
I was actually kind of excited about finding a Red-necked Grebe this morning.
Brandon Holden's been leading the theory that the wrecked birds are actually early migrants that fall out when they hit an unanticipated storm front, which makes a lot more sense.
There was actually a drake Red-breasted in the little back pond at LMC yesterday. I'm not sure whose theory it would have fallen under. This one is from its more traditional Lake habitat.
Random shot of blue ice.
