With a wind-chill of 5 degrees, I began to wonder if sitting by an arm of the Cedar Beach Lagoon at 7 AM made any sense. (Thanks for the hand and toe warmers, Pam!) But when the action finally got hot, it seemed worthwhile. First these buffleheads landed, and then a bunch of red-breasted mergansers passed through and into flight (including one little bufflehead who must have gotten confused by the big birds). The last shot is a close-up of one of the female mergansers.
