Longing for Ospreys – Day 75

For some reason this year I am pining for the return of the ospreys, more than ever before.

I cannot WAIT to hear their cries fill our salty skies once again, watch them as they raise their families against all odds.

It won’t be long now, and THIS little guy…


Will be getting an eviction notice on his winter rental…


From the summer osprey occupants, upon their return back to the Wychmere South nest!  😉

Kingfisher, by the Side of the Road – Day 44

I’ve always been a sucker for a bird on a wire….

And when it comes to Kingfishers, I always seems to “catch” them on the fly when I am driving.

Fortunately, this Lady was engrossed in her fishing expedition, and so I was able to capture a few stolen moments…


More to come of this Lovely Lady!   ❤

Fishing for Magic, at the Side of the Road – Day 14

I could have SO easily gotten rear-ended, but I could not resist pulling over to the side of the road and leaning out the window for this cutie!


For your viewing pleasure, one of our glorious Lady Kingfishers of Red River!


And don’t you just LOVE the DOO??


Yes, I do.

And the magic that is so uniquely and noisily and charmingly… Kingfisher.   ❤

Contestant #3, the Kingfisher surveying his domain from on high, scolding me as always because I stayed too long to admire…  😉

Contestant #4, the tiny Song Sparrow, ever present in the marsh when I arrive and when I leave, whose tiny frame belies his glorious Pavarotti tones.
