Late last fall as I was going around my favorite Saint John birding spots, I got to the boat club. I noticed a big bird by the shore. It wasn’t flying away and I immediately saw and realized it was frozen in the ice that had formed overnight near the shore. I approached it very slowly and broke the ice around it and the bird seemed to understand I was trying to help, it eventually freed itself with my help and slowly swam away.
