Short Sands Beach, York, Maine

I heard that there was an old ship hull exposed on Short Sands after the last big storm. I decided to go up at low tide to see if it was still exposed. A friend of mine that lives up in York said that it has been exposed twice in the last twelve years that he has lived there and that it gets reburied fairly quickly.

Oh well, it was a good opportunity to do some photography.

Ring-billed Gull

The Ring-billed Gull is a winter visitor here in Massachusetts. This time of year, they are coming into their breading plumage when the head loses its brown streaks.

First year Herring Gulls in flight

This Herring Gull is a master of flight and has survived his first winter. And it was a tough one.

Saturday Evening Creature Feature, Dark-eyed Junco

Here is a photo challenge for you. Take a Slate Colored Junco and stick him in the snow. Speaking of snow, we’ve been getting our share.

Forgotten Photo Friday, March Madness

This is what I was photographing last March 24th.

This is what I photographed on Tuesday. This is our east facing cathedral picture window. The storm is coming out of the east and pelting the window.

Enough of the March madness.

Our Big Boy Northern Cardinal

We have a pair of Northern Cardinals that frequent the yard. This is our big boy. He likes to sing in our trees.

He’s definitely the Cock-of-the-Rock in the yard.

American Tree Sparrow

And yet another yard bird to add to the list. This is the American Tree Sparrow. I saw him foraging in one of the flower beds in the front yard. He wasn’t very tolerant of my presence and he flew off into the middle of a bush. These are the only two shots I got. I’m surprised that the camera focused on the bird!

This is the first time I’ve seen one in Massachusetts. It’s not a everyday bird for us.

Dogbar Breakwater after the storm

Continuing with the photos from last Saturday morning, here are some images of the rollers pounding Dogbar Breakwater in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

These are the rollers coming in.

I was going to go up on this rock to take some pictures, but not this time! No way!

Again, a word of warning. Locals like Jay Albert, David Cox and I use telephoto lenses to get these shots. These waves are nothing to fool with!
