Bird Watching At The Boat Basin

One of my favorite pastimes is bird watching. There is always something to see in the Boat Basin especially this time of the year when there is no boat activity there. I was there this afternoon and saw several different kinds of ducks.

A very empty Boat Basin-


Mallards feeding. Bottoms up!-


A raft of male and female Buffleheads-


An Oldsquaw -


A Common Goldeneye-


A female Eider-

Wow, what beautiful pictures! I never noticed the diversity of ducks in the water down there. I guess there are usually so many people in the way! Hope the winter is going well. ~Off island Nantucket Native

Thanks for the look "up harbor"!

Nice to see that Pimney's Point hasn't changed much since I was a kid.
