Long-billed Dowitchers

I am back from a recent trip to Florida where I spent a little free time on the beach. I found a herd of Long-billed Dowitchers. This was fun because I usually see them bobbing up and down like Singer sewing machines on the mud flats. The tide was coming in—a whopping three feet, we have nine foot tides here in Gloucester. Since it the tide was high, they were off the mud flats and on the beaches taking a stroll.

The 202

On a recent trip to Proctor, Vermont, I stopped by the Marble Museum which was once the mighty Vermont Marble Company. I had been there hundreds of time in my youth because my family did work for VerMarCo. I thought I’d explore the tracks, something that I never thought about doing as a kid. Then I heard a bell ringing and could hear a rumble behind me.

Further up north, at the end of the line is Burlington, Vermont. I took this photo the 305 in April 2011.

Sutherland Falls, Proctor, VT

Proctor sits on large marble deposits. It is home to the one famous Vermont Marble Company which has a rich history. Vermont Marble Company helped build many of this nation’s monuments such as the Tomb of the Unknown Shoulder and the Lincoln Memorial.

This is Sutherland Falls. The Otter Creek tumbles past the buildings of the Vermont Marble Company. You can see the complex folds in the ancient sea bed that made up part of this area. The river flows north from Peru, Vermont up to Ferrisburgh where it empties into Lake Champlain.

Rupert, Vermont

Well, it was a wacky fall this year. The weather was very mild, 70s and 80s all through October. The leaves seemed to start turning early, and then the warm weather prevented the colors from fully changing. Then I had to go to Tampa, Florida for long business trip. Before I knew it, November arrived.

This is a picture taken in Rupert, Vermont. I have shot this location before. I really wish I had this chunk of land.

A bird in the hand is worth…

…two in the bush.

I took an early morning walk around the yard and saw these two birds. The bird on the left is a Swamp Sparrow and the one on the right is a Red-eyed Vireo. The young Swamp Sparrow thought he was the Cock-of-the-Rock and was chasing off the resident Song Sparrows. He tried talking smack to the vireo, but he was not having any of that.

I’m rather pleased with this because it rarely get a good photo of two bird species in one frame. Not only that, but getting a Red-eyed Vireo is the frosting on the cake. They are common here, but they are never found this low to the ground. This Vireo is also a youngster.

Self Portrate

Taken across the street from Harvard Square, waiting for the bus. Yah, that’s me in there, way in the back.
