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.
