I found that when you found activity, it was abundant in that area- which was usually not more than a tree or tuft of goldenrod, but then I would travel and hit some dead zones. I'm sure the random event happening on the Neathermead may have had some affect on what was around.
I was still pleased to have a pleasant morning out and to still have enough time to enjoy the park before work.
|Winter is coming...|
A sure sign that summer is over, a few dark-eyed juncos and white-throated sparrows were atop Lookout Hill, they migrate to us from the North and spend the winter around our parts.
|A male cardinal feeds on the seeds, abundant in the wildflower meadows on Lookout Hill.|
|I love messy beaks! Their large beak is perfect for hulling seeds and crushing them.|
|Came upon a family of mute swans and many mallards in front of the boat house as I looped around to the Lull Water.|
|This double crested cormorant popped up during my warbler watching, and caught my eye as it came up with a prize in his beak, so I grabbed a couple of shots...|
|Only to realize it was a stick, he tossed it around a bit and dropped it before diving down again.|
|Camouflaged among the goldenrod.|
|A yellow warbler seems to have the perfect camouflage for fall.|
|One of the many active Northern Parulas.|
