Author's notes

Across the river I notices two Masked Lapwings in the shallow water near the far bank. It was a cold morning so I was surprised to see them stationary in the river. One had its leg bent up to its body. I only observed them for a few minutes, from across the river, yet they did not move from that spot. I could see them moving their heads from side to side but they stayed in that one location the whole time.
