Some new faces and new behaviors…

Wow! Our luck with this beautiful weather just keeps holding. No matter what Billie Joe Armstrong says, I’m glad I’m not sleeping through this September. I did sleep a little extra this morning, though, and by the time I got to the pond, there were already two guys taking pictures of the wood ducks onContinue reading “Some new faces and new behaviors…”

Still some pretty sights to see…

The beautiful weather continues in Estabrook today, and more asters continue to open throughout the park, so I hope you get a chance to visit. When I arrived this morning, things were a little quieter than last time at the pond, with 7-8 wood ducks, one green heron, one young night heron, but no blueContinue reading “Still some pretty sights to see…”

Estabrook still surprises…

The weather was perfect again, and with the nip in the morning air and some leaves beginning to change color, it’s really starting to feel like autumn in Estabrook.

There were no herons that I could find at the pond again, but the wood ducks took itContinue reading “The park is abuzz, despite the clouds…”

A rewarding morning in Estabrook

Our string of picture-perfect weather continues, and there are still enough critters out and about to make a visit to Estabrook interesting. I thought at first that I would have to report that there were finally no herons on the pond, but our night-heron had simply moved to a new spot on the island. ThereContinue reading “A rewarding morning in Estabrook”

A whole lot going on in Estabrook!

What a perfect morning in Estabrook! The air was cool, dry, and calm. The sky was blue, and the sun came out. There was even another running race on the path and the Farmers Market on the parkway. Happily for us, the critters weren’t too put out by the crowds yet, seemed to enjoy theContinue reading “A whole lot going on in Estabrook!”
