Ice on the Shore & The Christmas Goose

The cold lately has brought with it the building up of white along the shore here in the bay. This morning there were patches of ice across the bay that broke up once the wind kicked in a bit, but I am afraid the ice along the shore will be with us for a while. I will need to get down nearer to the shore and get some photos later today.

This morning brought a Canadian goose to our field, and it is highly unusual for us to see just one. We have had them come to this same spot in the field before, but always in pairs at the least and sometimes whole flocks will land to graze or clean up for a while. This one was standing on one foot but didn't seem hurt or anything. Maybe just separated from the flock and resting for a bit. I hope it heads south soon!
