The view of the beach
Crane Beach (yesterday) wins out for beauty over this beach, but it was another warm (52 degrees) January day, so who can complain? Just across the street from the beach there was a big open area of scrubby grass. When I drove around this area to turn around and get back to the beach, I noticed a flock of Horned Larks there! Pretty neat looking little birds. They remind me of Killdeer.

I stopped to check the tidal marshes and looked out from a bridge over the Weir River on my way home. There was a nice variety of waterfowl here.
American Black Duck
Red-Breasted Merganser (male)
Red-Breasted Merganser (female)
I saw a large flock of ducks to the right of Barnes Wharf in Hingham, so I pulled right in to take look.
