Belated bird-blogging

The swans were washing as I visited the waterfront this morning - I now regularly see two swans and have no idea what has become of the other seven; they may have migrated, and this always makes me wonder how an individual bird decides whether to be a snowbird or stick around and risk the winter here.
Migrations are clearly happening (surprise!), as there were buffleheads among the mallards; we don't see thim in the summer. The oldsquaws are not yet here; there is nothing quite like having the inner bay full of them chattering away.
