Prospect Lake

Freezing weather, like it was this morning, is hardly my favorite time to go hiking. While the temperature was 26 degrees when I got to Prospect Lake, I had dressed with my warmest gear and it was sunny, calm, and teeming with birds. So I was happy.

Among a huge flock of Canada Geese were a pair of goldeneyes.

Looking closer, I spotted Hooded Mergansers.

These birds found the tiny part of Prospect Lake that wasn’t frozen. But the cormorant below was happy to stay on the ice.

It waved me goodbye.
