Dead Bird Composite - 2/28/15 - Image-a-day

Icy northwest winds are still blowing and snow still covers everything. I got out on the beach once more to get some hiking in. This cold weather has been tough on birds. The last few hikes I've seen many expired birds littering the beach. This bird was one of the larger ones I've come across. The white feathers on the body were stiff with ice. Even in death, this bird is graceful and free.
