Here and there traces of fog and even windblown snow curled tiredly. Birds wheeled exuberantly. She spied huge-winged kittiwakes, fulmars and jet-black guillemots. Every so often one of them would plunge into the dark water, seeking plankton or cod. There was more life here, crowded close to this shore, than anywhere else Icebones had seen on this small world. She heard an angry screeching. There was a bloody carcass on the ice—perhaps it was a seal, or even a bear cub. Petrels soared over it trailing arched wings, their tails fanned out to ward off rivals.
