The Wacissa... just before spring erupts
I have been out on the river several times in the past month. It has been cold, windy, foggy and this morning, when I launched just before dawn, I watched the sun slither up the trees and undulate across the western bank. Such light in the dawn. and hi gargoyle. When will I finally hear your piano...on a street in Amsterdam?
The woodstork below was soaring high over the river at dusk a few days ago.
I have been watching these traps for a few months. They finally disappeared last week. What type are they, I wonder? And whose were they?
Egrets mating dance. It was dusk and I couldn't get a clear shot but the image conveys the dance, I think, anyway.
This red shouldered hawk was roused by airboats this morningabout 7:30am.
This lone blackbird was singing a distinctive song this morning just after dawn.
