Home to roost…

The other day, I mistakenly described numerous nests high in the trees as Eagle’s nests. I had seen several Eagles gliding amongst these trees and perched atop these trees. More knowledgeable birders than I, knew these nests were a Heron Rookery. Today, I ventured back out to the area. I could not get any closer, but I had a slightly more powerful lens and I was able to capture a few pics of the Heron as they hunkered down atop the nests and other Heron arrived with what appeared to be food. The quality of the images isn’t great, but you can see the Heron are indeed occupying the nests.

Nature: Squirrels Protecting the Hole in the Wall

Squirrel SentinelsPhotography: I came upon these 3 vigilant squirrels along a twenty yard piece of shoreline. Their eyes were not focused upon me. They were looking to my left. They were frozen. I took the shots and nary an ear twitched. Perhaps it was something alarming them from my left, or it was me and an ‘if we don’t move, he won’t see us and our hole in the wall’. These were fat, bushy grey squirrels.

For me, the lack of motion and the stillness in the air was intriguing. They seemed to sense something that I was oblivious to. Oh, perhaps it was my wife hung up on an invisible snag for the third time?

Photography: Alien Beings Found Hiding

Nest Tubing TM

My son was atop a roof dismantling a satellite dish and removed the tubing. Inside the moss covered tubing he saw a creation that was tinged green and other worldly. Some how the tubing, which had appeared closed off had been invaded by persistent creatures that constructed a nest.
