There were loads and loads of Long-tailed Ducks on the water at Barnegat Light. A walk out onto the jetty produced close views of them in various stages of molt, a sure sign that spring is on the way, thank goodness. This duck looks completely different in the summer; with a black front and head and only a white face patch. This is the classic winter view.
