Since you liked seeing the ice that you can only dream about in your part of India I thought I would give you a wee bit more.

View towards the beach from out on the pier. Shore is way back there.


Zoomed in on that little ice cave. Winter's Icey Teeth.


This scoter, he really should have yawned more overnight.


Another view.

Thanks, Steve. We need all the ice. It's nearing 35 degrees here, and it's just March 1. I wonder how the ice formed on the beak - did the bird scoop the ice, or is the beaksuch a'conductive' material? Good photos, thanks for sharing.

Glad you liked the ice. About that duck; the photos amazed long time birders around here, so I guess it is not a common thing. The bird may have been sick and not done whatever they do to keep from icing up when it is below freezing. Although I saw him eating and diving later, the next day someone reported one acting poorly, and I found a dead one of the same type the next harbor down. The birds are getting botulism from eating invasive species that concentrate toxins.
