Irondequoit Bay Outlet Bridge - February 23

Over the lunch hour Mary Flood and I checked out Irondequoit Bay Outlet Bridge. The channel was filled with ice and there were two or three small patches of open water just south of the bridge. Our highlights were a Canvasback and a half-dozen Trumpeter Swans.
