Sample text

Out on a lake covered with ducks and on which hardly a duck in hundreds is a bufflehead, a certain type of rapid splashing here and there in a small area signifies fighting buffleheads. At a distance, one may be reminded of ricocheting bullets or of water droplets on a hot surface of marshes and spring 13 or of something else other than bufHeheads, but, out there, they still remind one of buffleheads, too-buffleheads behaving as one comes to expect them to behave. If someone tries to get the splashy areas within the field of binocular or telescope, the buffleheads may be gone-nothing in sight but the ringnecks and pintails and mallards and the other common ducks.

If someone tries to get the splashy areas within the field of binocular or telescope, the buffleheads may be gone-nothing in sight but the ringnecks and pintails and mallards and the other common ducks. Then, a little black and white may show on the surface and disappear and, off to the side, some more black and white may appear and disappear, mostly to stay under the surface as long as diving is the thing to do. Another name for the bufflehead is spirit duck. The fighting, spiriting bufHeheads left one of their number behind them on a marsh to which I made frequent visits.

The mallards and pintails were barely out of reach and their colors bright, or, farther away, their dim bodies faded into invisibility. Then, as late-afternoon fatigue warned me not to be caught by darkness wandering over more than a square mile of marsh, I headed for shore, and the ducks made way to let me pass. Soon, the ice may start melting through in the vicinity of cracks or muskrat channels or spring holes or heating vegetation beneath, or at the places last to freeze over. Wind-blown surface waters nibble at the edges of the ice about these openings, and needles separate and fall into the water and drift against the next shelf of needles ready for falling.
