Birding Companions

The kind help of another photographer allowed me to see and photograph my first Bald Eagle.

Standing knee-deep in a pond in November is true dedication for any photographer!

Curiosity brought me and others to the site.
An eagle was perched high in the canopy.

Beware of the talons…

And the beak!

Quinnetuket Picnic

“Quinnetuket” is the Native American word for Connecticut, and means “beside the long river”. The Connecticut River is the longest river in New England, flowing southward for 406 miles through four states. As it runs through Northfield, Massachusetts, the Riverview Picnic Area provides a wonderfully scenic place for a picnic in any season.
