Breezy...at Breezy Point

I went with my friend out to Breezy Point last Saturday. It had been ages since I had been out birding or even out much. But boy was it breezy. We walked along the bay side for a bit but there weren't many birds about (they were smarter than us:). Then we walked for a sahorter time on the ocean side. Saw a few sanderlings. The wind was blowing sand which made for some pretty beach sand patterns. I waited for some crashing waves and shot a couple of pictures. Later we walked along the bay beach closest to the gate. I didn't take my camera that time. We saw some common mergansers, american black ducks and buffleheads. It was great to see birds!

Hi Cindy. I haven't been to the coast this month but I guess the scene will be very similar, with or without my favorite 'clockwork' wader.

Thanks Dan, I hope the spring is soon.

Hi Andrea, it take some time to thaw but the hot chocolate helped.

Hi Frank, it was very cold! Looking forward to the spring at this beach; we are having a very long winter this year
