Of course, they don’t much look like this now (they’ve grown up so much so quickly!).

The Fiddlers in the Tide

with 3 comments

On a recent kayaking expedition (read: rented a two person kayak from the place at the marina and paddled around in the harbor), we chanced to see hundreds of fiddler crabs, scuttling towards the tide-line. A seagull was nearby, warily eying us as he scoped out his dinner.

The Young Willets

leave a comment »

These little guys were out with their Momma, playing in the reeds and the little water pools near the road. You can tell these are young by the softer down on their heads and necks. I do not think they could fly — Momma Willet took off a few times to reconnoiter while they ran back off into the reeds.
