Ice-breaking Ferry

Great birding in Delaware, plus the chance to be out with the eyes, ears and skills of my son Tim, lured me across the bay yesterday. And it was indeed great - both light and dark morph Rough-legged Hawks, Snowy Owl, 60+ Snow Buntings, Lapland Longspur, and epic Snow Goose snowstorms at/near Prime Hook NWR, plus terrific waterbirding on the coast. Of course, the wind chill dipped to zero, which made the return trip on the Cape May - Lewes Ferry very special. The sound in the video is not wind . . . it's ice breaking. Made me think of the Titanic, but a safe crossing was made. I've never had a bad trip on that ferry.
