With Shelburne Bay mostly iced in (and a few fishing shanties creeping out
of the inlet into the bay), the large flock of goldeneyes previously  described
in the bay has shifted over to the lake side, accompanied by  a few common
mergansers, joining the resident half dozen or so black ducks  there.  Also, I
spotted a single, lonely male ring-necked duck swimming  among these birds
close to the shoreline. Across from Shelburne Farms, perched  on a power line, was
the familiar red-tailed hawk that patrols this  area.
