Blue Jay

There have been a few Blue Jays coming to the feeder in recent days along with several white-throats, one Junco and the other regulars.  This is one of them, November 25.

Black-capped Chickadee

I don't have a picture of a black-capped on the blog yet so I guess it's time to add one. Not a lot of birds in the woods these days, this one was on the walking trail in Jordan Falls. The blue in the background is the river. November 24.

Horned Lark

I stopped at Chebogue Point on the way back from Yarmouth. The most interesting find was a Rough-legged Hawk hunting in the fields with at least three Northern Harriers. There were many Snow Buntings, Pipits as well as Horned Larks, the first for me this year. Nov. 14th

Snow Bunting Portrait

The Snow Buntings have arrived in numbers. I had lots of opportunities for shots, several at close range like this one.

White-rumped Sandpiper

This one was flying solo on this day and was particularly approachable.  November 4, East Ragged Island.

Ruddy Turnstone with crab

There are still a few shorebirds in the area. I managed to find several turnstones on this day, this one found a treat amongst the seaweed.
