Long-tailed Ducks

Long-tailed Duck, Rockport Harbor, Maine, 07 February 2018.

Long-tailed Duck.

I hiked the hill before the storm
and saw or heard a few small birds
but none would pose for photographs
so I took a spin to the harbor

where long-tailed ducks were diving here
and there and buffleheads, mallards,
and black ducks hung with herring gulls
but the long-tailed ducks were my favorite

Beginning at 9 a.m., I hiked the open trail.
