About the author jmankowsky

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

  1. What beautiful visitors you get to enjoy at your feeders, Julie. Of the ones depicted, we only get to see the Blue Jays and Juncos.

    1. There are fewer birds in Winter, of course, but they look striking against the snow, and I love to watch them “party” around the feeders.

      1. I can relate, Julie, as I arranged my desk with a straight view of our feeders. I can spend hours watching their antics.
