Have You Ever Seen an Eider Dance?

During our icy Cape Cod winters, there’s nothing that I find more peaceful than looking out and seeing an Eider who’s found a sliver of open water for fishing.


A few weeks ago, I was watching this handsome fellow who suddenly hopped up on the ice…


And then began to dance his way across the frozen surface with all the grace and style of Fred Astaire himself!


He was heading toward the next patch of open water…


And as he plopped down into his newfound sliver of blue…


I noticed that he’d found a new friend there.

A female Bufflehead!


Could this be his Ginger, I wondered??

I could tell by the way he tipped up, puffing his chest…


That he liked that idea very much!  😉
