Happy New Year!

Happy New Year all! Despite our second rainiest December on record here in the Seattle area, we had a brilliantly sunny and frosty New Year’s Day as we often do. Temperatures actually got into the 20s last night, which doesn’t happen that often.

New Year’s Day morning I was bird watching and spotted this handsome couple, who were taking turns bobbing for breakfast. At first they alternated their acrobatics, then synced up. If Duck Diving with the Stars was a real show, they’d have won first prize.

If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands. –Douglas Adams
