Before heading home I took a detour down to Irondequoit Bay. Nothing too exciting there, but I did stop to snap a few photos. A woman by the pier asked me if I was a photographer.
"I play," I answered with a smile.
"Are you a birder?" she asked.
"Not really, " I said, but I was there to take pictures and this is where the water fowl congregate. Ducks, geese, swans, and gulls...
"Maybe I'll google it, " I told her.
"It's a King Eider, " she said, "I'm Eider a king or eider I'm not."
I laughed and assured her I wouldn't forget, and I haven't.
