Past time to migrate

Image
Anne was at Erieau Tuesday December 30/08 looking for ducks and white fronted geese.

The white fronted had moved on but she did hear a kingfisher from the orther side of the Erieau channel.

Another birder pointed ou this bird taling shelter behind an old willow.


If you look closely you can see a clump of ice around its ankle.



Way past time to migrate dude!

Anne puts out a small cracked corn for the deer.

Normally she has a young one with her, but not this year.

It's nice having an identifying mark so you know it is the same one returning each winter.

What's that delicious smell?

I feel like I'm going in circles and never get anything done.

Our as our younger son said when he was little -- duck, duck--

This downey decided to raid the hummingbird feeder.

He became a regular to the displeasure of the hummers

He's not sharing!
