Freezing Boston harbor and Red Breasted Merganser

This week I saw a beautiful male Red Breasted Merganser near the New England Aquarium. I was looking at the gulls searching for crabs and admiring the frozen water when I looked up and this beautiful Merganser swam by. It was a windy day and you can see the way his crest is blown by the bitterly cold wind.
