Yesterday, when the sun was still shining, I hit the beaches at Squbnocket and Lucy Vincent Beaches in Chilmark with an eye to documenting recent winter arrivals.
Sanderling swimming? Not really.
Most of the eiders in these five shots are the same birds. I am wondering about splicing some of the 1X2 or 1X3 proportioned cropped shots end-to-end for a panorama of sea ducks.
Birds of a feather …, or do they? This drake teal was probably hanging with the saltwater crowd because there was new ice over most of the marshy section of nearby Squibnocket Pond.
At Lucy Vincent’s there was first a pair of Harlequins. Then the hen Harley morphed into a oddly plumaged hen Old Squaw (LTDU), which we rarely see this close to shore at this section of the island. The f. Harley and the f. Old Squaw were buddies and cruised up and down the shoreline together.
Birds are cool! Lanny
