This guy was sitting in a spruce just south of the beach. He didn’t appreciate the crow dive bombing him every time he tried to take off, so he was content is wait it out in the tree. Nice to have the eagles around, but they are definitely hard on the loon chicks.
Last week, Michaela, camera in hand, patiently waited at the feeder. She was rewarded with this shot of a Ruby-throated Hummingbird. It seems there are always 2 or 3, or more, at the feeders, perhaps indicative of our lack of flowers normally blooming at this time of year.
