Scoter Day 11-24-14

A very blustery, chilly day at Prospect Lake.  The Duluth Trading company fleece-lined fire-hose pants did an amazing job of keeping me warm even in strong winds.  Thanks to Mel and Beth, I got 3 life-birds today - Surf Scoter, White-winged Scoter, and Black Scoter.

Coot came right by us on the beach.

squirrels definitely well-fed here.

That very friendly squirrel made me smile. We don't have it here, only brown ones (not really a good description) which if u are lucky can spot only on the trees.
