Winter at Great Meadows

Great Meadows NWR, Concord.

Some days you have to fight for every single bird you see. Hello, robin. A little windy, isn't it?

There was only one spot of open water and the mute swans claimed it. They shared it, grudgingly, with the coots.

The Canada geese, the official symbol of Great Meadows, were forced onto the river. I only saw seven of them while I was there.

The song sparrows were the only birds flying about. This one posed for a nice winter portrait.
