Bush Terminal Park

Tired of being kept indoors by the cold, I ventured out yesterday to look at this new Brooklyn park. It was pretty darned cold, about 25 F, and I didn't stay long. Click here for information about and directions to the park. Click here for a great place to have lunch while you are there. 
The park is surrounded by industrial waterfront buildings from an earlier age.  Click to enlarge the photos. 
In the park, a flock of cold-looking ring-billed gulls, Larus delawarensis, were standing on the ice. 
More cold-looking gulls hunkered down on the rocks. 
The rocks by the shore were icy. 
A few Canada geese, Branta canadensis, were walking through the dry grass. 
A pair of American wigeons (Anas penelope) swam by. The male is  on the left and the female on the right. 
A few rafts of bufflehead ducks (Bucephala albeola) swam offshore. 
One of the buffleheads caught an arthropod snack!
