Feels appropriate considering the snowstorm that is supposed to be coming.

The Snow Lined Canal

leave a comment »

Recently I went looking for a black crowned night heron. My mother had the good fortune to spot it not once but twice in the past few weeks, and so she and I headed out to see if we could spot it again. We took Dune Road, from the Jessup Ln bridge in Westhampton Beach to the end of the road in Hampton Bays.

Somewhere in the middle we saw this canal, with tons of seagulls and some sort of diving duck (too far away to be positively identified, in person or through the photographs), but no black crowned night heron. Ahh well, at least I know there’s one around.

The Sparrow on the Fence

It seems like snowstorms bring out a gazillion (<– scientific number right there) birds to the feeders. Well, it only makes sense. The more snow, the more a bird shivers. The more a bird shivers, the more energy it expends and needs to replace.

I particularly love the expression of this white throated sparrow — it looks as if any second he’s going to come pelting off the fence and do his best impression of a linebacker.
