The latest warm weather and shifting winds broke up the ice pack
along the shore this morning on Colchester Point, but several ice
floes about 20 feet out were the scene of something quite amusing.
As a number male common goldeneyes watched, several females climbed
up onto about a two foot square ice floe, then proceeded to
deliberately push each other off as more females (and perhaps
juveniles) attempted to join them. They carried on for a good ten
minutes doing this. I have no idea what it was all about, but it
sure was fun to watch.
