Two birds were at least 1/2 mile away around Gundy Lake, Charlotte county N.B. They were not visible but could be heard (the sound was very odd). As they approached it was evident what the sound was they were making. One of the birds circled low. The other bird flew straight up to about 150' above and dove straight down to where the lower bird was flying. The noise I was hearing all along (at least 10 times before I knew it was birds) was the sound of the diving bird pulling out of the dive…

red-bellied woodpecker

Perhaps this isn't as unusual as I first thought, judging by past posts on this site, but still - if anyone's interested, there was a red-bellied woodpecker in my front yard yesterday (between Oak Point and Evandale).

Sandhill Cranes

The small flock of sandhill cranes is still feeding in the same field in Rexton almost every morning. There were 7, now 5. It is on route 495, just outside of town on the right in the farm field, left of the driveway, usually with a big flock of geese. They have been there for 10 days now.

The Post Migration Blues

If you are like my wife Kitty, you are happy that summer is fleeing and that Autumn is approaching, but there is a sting with the feel of fall.

Today, I was down to Dutch Point, started off up on a ridge looking out over a stand of Ash, Maple and Spruce, looking through the canopy and at the forest floor I observed White Tail Deer, Red Squirrels, Gray Squirrels and even a little mouse like creature, I could hear Crows, Jays, and Black-Cap Chickadees in the distance but that was…

The Blind at Bloomfield Ridge -Comes down tomorrow

Well I took down the wood blind 2 weeks ago and put my ground blind up where it was standing.  Today my landlord showed up and went down and started cutting down the trees near where my blind is so I have to remove it in the morning.  I was hoping to continue till the end of the month, but I guess that's just not an option.

So will go down early, put out feed, sit in blind for abit , then strike down the blind but will continue to feed till May then it will be done, and next year will…

The Blind at Bloomfield Ridge -The last days of March

So I have some pics from the last days of March at the Blind, sadly things will change as my Landlord is choosing to cut down all the Hawthornes and burn the brush piles.  He has 2 brush piles of hawthorne already cut which the birds have used as a source of cover over the winter, and now they are going to be burnt.  I understand burning before the fire season but what I don't understand is why, he doesn't use the area where the hawthorne is growing, it's on an old fence row to an old field…

Will post pics in morning

So both my camera and video camera had no battery left, so had to recharge.  It's bad because the snow is level with our living room window and the suet feeder and hanging feeder.  So the Junco's , Am Tree Sparrows, Purple Finch, Ev. Grosbeaks, and Northern Cardinals were at eye level to our window.   I'm hoping to get pics first thing in the morning to post, tried to get down to the Blind but the wind swept me back, therefore we stocked up the feeders around the house and happy the…
