Cold, Coots and occasional eagles

Drove around a little bit this afternoon attempting to capture some images of the 'cold'

here is Harrison River looking south from the bridge....

and the other way.  

There were a couple of Bald Eagles perched in the trees close to the highway....this was one of them.

went of Harrison Bay....unfortunately it was already in shade so photos not that great...this one shows the snow or dust blowing in those outflow winds, which were a lot less strong today than they had been.

there were a lot of American Coot along the shoreline, probably several hundred.  Various ducks mixed in too including Mallard, American Wigeon, Bufflehead....that is one of several Double Crested Cormorant flying.

and there is a Northern Shoveler in the back....sorry about the photo quality!

there were a number of swans out there....from the calls I'd say most are Tundra Swans.

some Canada Geese flew over....

and just like last time we stopped here, the first bird we saw was....

a Pileated Woodpecker.
