Views from the marsh...

Oh, Dreary Days

A week ago Friday, I was hanging out with the gulls at Crosswind Marsh, enjoying the sunshine and chasing birds. Now, the weather has been dank and rainy and very depressing and to top it all off, I have been sick in bed for the last 3 days with some dang superbug. Can't talk, can't breathe and have no energy to do anything. At least I can't worry about all the work I have to do outside because it is too wet to do much. Soon the snow will be falling and I have all my perennials yet to cut back and bushes to trim and so on. Oh well, there is nothing for it but to watch as much TV as possible.
I loved all these gulls hanging out on the railing...they are living right.

Nesting Eagles

A facebook friend posted some great photos of a Bald Eagle pair building a nest out at Kennsington. Unfortunately, my pictures are not good and I never saw the Eagles. The nest is located right dab in the middle of the Rookery. In the spring the trees on the small island are loaded with Heron and Egret nests.......so I am really curious how that's going to work. Will the Eagles nest there? Will the Herons come back? Will there be squabbles or worse? Or will they raise their young in peace and harmony?We will have to wait until spring to find out.

 You can still see the remnants of the Heron nests but the Eagles' nest clearly stands out because it is
 much bigger.




 The next three wonderful photos are by Loretta Tester......great work, Loretta
