We’ve paddled the usual places the past 10 days. The mornings are getting colder and more foggy. We’ve seen great blue herons, green herons, cormorants, loons, ducks and other creatures. Loons do fly, they just take a long runway to take off.
The ducklings have arrived this week,
along with other birds,
a variety of turtles,
We’ve seen our first robins, red-winged black birds, cedar waxwings.
The ice is mostly gone from the Connecticut and the waterfowl are around.
Chipmunks have joined the red squirrels at the wood pile (one at a time)
What we saw this week: night hawks,
great blue herons,
and some songbirds.
We spent a couple of evenings this week on the Connecticut River between Wilder and Hanover and have finally seen the duckings we hadn’t seen when we paddled earlier in the day.
We saw ducklings of varying ages, some families are new born, others are several weeks old.
The geese flew by.
This mallard male had a funny expression.
