Yesterday was just begging for a hike (isn't this weather fantastic?) so we
went up to Hazen's Notch and walked up Haystack. We got a late start and
birds near the Notch were quiet. But there were a LOT of dead trees and we
saw a few birds that were fun to photograph near the top, a chickadee with
his/her mouth FULL of bugs and a close view of a winter wren are my
Today is one of my favorite days of the summer...we seem to have successful
titmouse nests each year and a group fledged today...what fun to watch them
in the trees behind my house this morning.
In case you like pictures...
1. A veery singing by the road on my morning walk:
2. A funny shot of a sunning chickadee: He lay in an awkward position for
three of four minutes, then sat up, settled his feathers and flew off.
