There were two Golden-Crowned Kinglets in the brush next to the lake. These birds are as small as a hummingbird, but they stay in Massachusetts during the cold winter. I recently read that their average body temperature in winter is about 111 degrees! Amazing! These birds move almost constantly (probably to keep their temperature up!) and are, therefore, a challenge to photograph. Usually, a bunch of branches stand in the way, too!
Also while I was there, a Ring-Billed Gull flew towards me and then stopped on the ice next to me, so I had to include photos of it!
Last, but not least, this bird hopped off of one of the cement boat ramps and was pecking away at the base of it. I couldn't be certain what it was, so asked Alan M. of the Forbush Bird Club for assistance in identifying it. It looked somewhat like a sparrow, but had a longer, narrower bill. Plus, it had an off- whitish throat and a curved off-whitish line under the cheek as well as a streaked breast and at least a partial eye-ring. The sun was behind it, so I couldn't get a decent photo. I think it's an American Pipit, a life bird!
