Snowy, Blowy

Black-capped Chickadee, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 30 January 2018.

Black-capped Chickadee.

Last night I dreamed I spotted a Snowy Owl that—which no one else could see for some reason—and took a bunch of photos of it, but I’d somehow been using a locked camera card which meant (by some strange dream logic) that none of the photos were recorded. But there was still some daylight left, so I commenced to scrambling to find the right card, which I couldn’t, so I woke up.

Jack loves snow

Jack loves to run around in the snow.

No snowy on the hill today—but plenty of snow. And wind. But I did find a hardy little chickadee.

And Rock Pigeons on their huddled usual rooftop in Rockport Village.

Eastern Bluebird.

Came upon a bright male bluebird this cloudy, balmy, thawy morning. He was scouting about for berries and such. Lots of blueberries on the hill this winter so far.
