Last gasp

This is what it looked like as I was on my way into work yesterday. Winter is mounting one last, half hearted attack. But it can't last. As I was crossing the Charles I saw, 2 Pairs of Common Mergansers, a small flock of Hooded Mergansers and a small flock of Ruddy Ducks swimming around in one of the melt pools. These guys are just stopping on their way north, so good-bye winter. Besides Puxatony Phil said we're getting an early spring and if you can't trust some giant rodent, who can you trust? I have to get some binoculars and a camera with a good zoom.
