November Jewels

Winter friends spotted on a recent visit to the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton MA. Wide-ranging colors and bursts of energy lift one’s spirits on a gray New England day.

Fall Walk

Photographs from a late afternoon walk at the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA. There’s nothing quite like the gold, red and green of a New England Fall.

Snack Time

My point-and-shoot camera makes it easy to capture spur of the moment bird photos while enjoying a Fall walk.

Ground Level

During a brief hiatus between snow squalls, there was time for food and companionship.

Walking on Thin Ice

The adaptable Canada Geese are back on the pond, and don’t seem to mind that it is still partly frozen. After a bit of slip-sliding away on the ice, what could be better than a quick “polar dip”?

Two More Spring Arrivals

Hurrah for two common birds: The house finch and the brown-headed cowbird. They arrived at the Audubon just a few days ago.

This single finch was easy to spot among the chickadees at the feeders, while the brown-headed cowbird was part of a large flock who alternated between the tall pines and the feeders. The cowbirds seemed perfectly happy to mingle with the red-winged blackbirds and grackles. I love the cowbirds’ songs, which are described as “a variety of whistles, clicking and chattering calls”.
