Four Ring-necked Ducks joined the more common winter species in the
little bay by the Charlotte Ferry dock. A half dozen or so hooded
mergansers were also present.
I was surprised to see that there is still a lot of open water. At
Burlington the open water is very far offshore, but at Charlotte Town
Beach, the ice ends only about 20 yards from shore.
Common Goldeneyes are at CTB in their hundreds. I couldn't find a
Barrow's among them, but it was choppy and some of the groups were far
out. There were hoodies in very close, giving lovely views.
