Pintail visitor

 After the 3rd weekend storm this month, decided to go down the shore to watch the goldeneyes and mallards as a light snow fell.I was very surprised to see a pair of pintails fly by and pitch in with the mallards.
 As I sat behind the ice clumps the pair swam by a few time unaware of my presents.I was fortune to listen to them whistle at each other as they followed the mallards.Pintails are rare around these waters so I assume the storm brought them in,hopefully they'll return this spring again.
