...however one this past Sunday, flying east to west about a mile out over the ocean off the eastern side of Race Point Beach seemed fairly odd. I barely see them out there during warmer months!

If you look at the ebird data they are year round in massachusetts. pretty regular on any open water even in winter and def easy to find given the current winter as of today.

I saw one at Woburn's Horn Pond on December 26. We have some hardy herons here! I wonder if they are year-round residents, or more northern birds coming south.
