Looking Out, Zooming In

My point-and-shoot camera enables me to see amazing details, even at a great distance. During a recent walk at Mass Audubon Wachusett Meadow, I thought I saw a nest swinging near the top of a tree. Thanks to my camera, I was delighted to discover that it was really this gorgeous Barred Owl!

February Arrival

In Massachusetts, the return of the red-winged blackbird is a welcome sign of Spring. Luckily, this one doesn’t seem to mind the snow.

Stained Glass Blue Jay

Jewel-like colors can be found in lively meadow lands as well as quiet cloisters.

Charming Chickadees

The sociable black-capped chickadee is the state bird of Massachusetts. It does not migrate, so its cheerful call can be heard in any season, anywhere from backyards to deep forests. It is a delightful companion all year round.
