After work I drove back to the beach and braved the icy wind to take this short video of the Lake Erie waves:
I’m so lucky to work at the world-famous Magee Marsh–it’s such a special place to so many people, and now it’s right outside my office door anytime I need a nature break. I hope I never take this for granted. In just about 10 weeks this magical place will be inundated with birds and birders when we host the Biggest Week in American Birding. But tonight I had the entire marsh to myself, and it was pure heaven! Hundreds of swans and ducks were coming in for the night, honking and quacking from every direction. And the Red-winged Blackbirds have begun singing in earnest this past week, a sure sign that spring is really coming. Words just don’t do it justice, so here are a few more pictures. Enjoy!
And one last sunset pic, with the color saturation and tint adjusted, just for fun!
