Other then the odd bit of snow flurry it was dry today even though the wind was a bit nippy, I did manage to get some shots of a couple of ospreys later in the day.

Re: Just sitting on the back of the boat

We have swans that work their way up and down the river. You see them swim into each marina looking for handouts, then it's downriver to the next.

Feed them once and they'll remember your boat.

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau

Did see a couple of these yesterday later in the day as well.

Re: Just sitting on the back of the boat

One of my favorite pastimes - sitting on the boat watching the birds. Our Osprey's haven't shown up yet this year, lot's of Bald Eagles though. I particularly like watching the Kingfishers in the marina, they each have their preferred perch. This time of year we still have the Bufflehead ducks, which are as cute as they get.
Thanks for the pics, I'll have to try to get some.

Re: Just sitting on the back of the boat

Today I had a wander around the pond in the yard.
