First Big Snowstorm

Looking out early this morning to see snow mounds
from overnight. That's the birdbath!

We have to make sure the birds can find their food.

Interesting Sightings this Week

A beautiful fox darted out in front of
our car and into the golf course...

My favorite is this Snowy owl on an Adirondack chair
towards evening last night.

Can you see the Snowy owl?

with a row of starlings. 
Neither paid any attention to the other.

Such beauty!

Catching up

Autumn fills the air as nature prepares for winter...

Chippy found an overturned cup of sunflower seeds
and filled his cheeks and disappeared to store them.

A very young finch is finding food in our wildflowers.

I am seeing birds I haven't seen before in our garden.
I am not sure who this one is!

The hummingbird is still here finding nectar in 
unusual flowers.

 The chickadees are here there and everywhere!


A great blue heron fishes in an inlet...

and a favorite thing to do for us is to see the egrets
fly in early evening back to the safety of the island.
They are so majestic and graceful and fill us with

our garden flowers.
A sense of magic in the air!

Yesterday morning these young ducks were sitting
on a log before plunging into the cove for a swim...

taking a walk on the beach these young surfers 
reminded me of the duckling!

Too hot!

Resting and Nesting

Here's Brody sharing a nap with his little buddy

while outside in the broken arbor I could barely see
through the tangle of honeysuckle vines the
nest of the mourning doves...one of the babies
was visible from just the right angle.

in the blink of an eye!

Harlequin Ducks

Today was a beautiful day to walk along the
Marginal Way in Ogunquit.
A short distance in I noticed what appeared to
be some sea birds I had never seen before.
Sure enough and to our great surprise they were
Harlequin ducks!
What a treat!
Hope you enjoy seeing them, too!

First Day of Spring

Could this be the first day of spring?

Tuesday, March 19, 2013


A large snowstorm  took this chipmunk by surprise,
he just woke up from hibernation a few days ago
and spring is tomorrow!
I noticed him in the garden sitting on the top of a
weeping mullberry.
(can you see the chipmunk in the photo above?
you can click the photo to enlarge)
