When it was just lightly raining, I decided I'd try to squeeze a walk in at Dorchester Harbor Walk before the predicted heavy rains arrived. Boy, was I in for a surprise when I walked down the steps by the JFK Library and felt the full force of the gusting wind. There were some ducks trying to take shelter near the shore, so at least that was in my favor. It's a new year, so it's time to start tracking my bird list again. I knew I could add a few birds to my list on this walk.
American Coots (first of year)
Great Black-Backed Gull
Horned Grebe (first of year)
American Black Ducks
(you can see how the wind affected the surface of the water)
