A raft of rejects…

I can hear the wind whipping outside as I type this, and the weather channel leads off its hourly forecast with “Gale Warning”, so maybe it’s just as well that I don’t have time to visit Estabrook today. Luckily, there’s been so much to see lately that I often haven’t been able to fit all the pictures in, so let me show you some that didn’t fit, instead.

Here’s a fun shot of a bunch of mallards and geese above the falls keeping their eyes on the sky from all the way back on Wednesday, December 22, soon after the eagles started showing up.

Here’s a male, hairy woodpecker from the same day.

Here’s another one of the three bluebirds at the north end from Monday, January 3.

Here’s another picture of the Bufflehead drake from Tuesday, January 4.

Here’s another picture of the white-breasted nuthatch at the north end from yesterday, Friday, January 7.

Finally, here are a couple shots of another black-capped chickadee at the south end from Friday, January 7, and this one is nibbling on a snack it has hauled up to that branch and is now grasping between its toes

And here it is taking a quick break to make sure I’m not getting any closer.

Lastly, I expect that I’ll be able to resume our regularly schedule program tomorrow, so see you all then.
