A pair of mallards cruised along the outskirts of Poggy Bay on the Connecticut coast last weekend. While the temperatures were moderate during our visit, this winter has seen steady below freezing temperatures that have allowed ice to form along the rocky coastline – since this is salt water, this means it has been really cold!
Along the Connecticut coast this winter, we found the usual collection of energetic sparrows. I know a group that is sustained by the regular feeding from my brother. This one has the attributes of the white-throated edition.
