Waterfowl

Over the last few days I've been out viewing and photographing the waterfowl in the area. Because of the cold weather. the ponds and coves are starting to ice up, which will congregate the waterfowl and to smaller areas. I am sure as the ponds ice up more and get completely close off the birds will start to migrate southward or more out into the ocean waters.
