Heading north on I-91, just across the Vermont-Massachusetts boarder is the Guilford Welcome Center. This is a great place to stop and stretch the legs, get maps, find Vermont information and just take a few pictures.

I suppose if you took a trip down to the south east coast of the United States, you may see this bird and just dismiss it as an American Crow. The fish crow is smaller overall and has a deep nasal double syllable call.
This is the first time I’ve actually been able to get an image of one. Like most corvids, they are fairly aware of who is pointing at them and will not hesitate to take off. I got off three rapid shots before this one fled the scene.

It is a welcome sign to see sap buckets hanging on maple trees. They are a harbinger of spring.
Warm days caused the sap to flow up, cold nights drives the sap down.
Here is a photo of a slice through a maple tree that has been tapped many times during its lifetime. Hanging beside it is a collection of spiles.

It has been a long time since I have sont the Thacher Island lights. I went out on February 20th to practice some night photography.
This is the Milkyway as it was seen over Rockport, Massachusetts.
This is what Thacher Island looked like to me when I arrived on location. I have to chuckle because the landscape is very rocky and one has to scamper around over rocks and boulders. I forgot how difficult the footing was. But I made it out without banging up my gear or my body.

When the image above what taken, the sun is already down and below the blue hour is well underway. The stars started to come out.
The blue hour was winding down and clouds started to build up. This was the last good image that I captured. I was planning on getting some images after twilight but the weather was deteriorating. It was time to go home and warm up.

I’ve always wanted to shoot an Anhinga. This was my day to get a male. The lighting was horrid, but I couldn’t pass it up.
A couple of days later, I saw a female right by the condo!
Be sure to visit Wild Bird Wednesday this week!
