In June, it’s all about the Red-winged blackbirds in the salt marshes here on the Cape.
Their songs ring out in the marshes, and the striking black-red-yellow color contrast of the males against the green spring grass can literally take your breath away.
Happy Sunday! 😉
I love Red-wings.
And I love fog.
Yesterday morning, early, I had the gift of them both at once in the marsh along Red River.
The sounds of the Red-wings pierced the thick salty air as they called back and forth to one another.
Through the fog the birds seemed somehow larger than life; the colors more vivid and their songs, amplified.
I stood there, enraptured.
It was magical.
Cannot wait to share my moments with this Snowy Egret a few days ago, right around sunset.
It was, in a word…
I met one of the loveliest female Eiders today.
She was busy glorying in the sunshine, flapping her wings in the gusting sea breezes.
I was glorying in HER.
As I tried to hold the camera steady. 😉
How I do hate saying “So long” to them…
This time of year…
More to come! 🙂
