Anglers, apparently, are hardier than I am.
I drove down to the Susquehanna River in hopes of finding something new for my 2011 York County bird list. That’s where I saw the anglers. The first was the gentleman in my first photo, standing in the river, bundled against the cold, with chunks of river ice floating past in a continuous parade. Even standing in the river he looked more comfortable than I felt.
My second angler was of the avian kind. This belted kingfisher was perched in a tree within feet of the first angler. Unfortunately, neither angler appeared to be having a very successful morning.
