Brian and Dawne Shand, Boston, and I did some cold weather birding from my scanoe. We broke ice and had a great trip. A Blue-headed Vireo was the bird of the day (22 Dec., 2005)

Brian Shand, Boston, birding Swamp Island

We saw many Pine Warblers. We added a Blue-headed Vireo to the Park list on this trip.
We broke the ice and eased our way through the swamp

We broke ice as we explored the swamp. Birding was good on Swamp Island.
Thomas and Brian on Swamp Island, Dec. 2005

Thomas Wilson and Brian Shand enjoyed the cold weather birding. We could concentrate on birds and not worry about Swamp Island rattleshakes.
