Neighborhood Birds

To day 31 Oct 2010 while out for a walk about 9.30 am. in Riverview, the neighborhood was alive with birds. Big flocks of robins, crows, blue jays, chickadees and squirrels[grey].

Invitation to post "unknown creepy crawlies" for tentative ID

Hi all, I may be opening a HUGE can of worms here, but if people would like a name put to some of the things they have photographed, there are several of us who can be of assistance and I volunteer to help, within reason. As for birds, there is actually a discussion group called Birding Q and A under which you can post images that you would like identified. As for all the other stuff, I have already created a group called the NB Odonata group for dragonflies and damselflies which anyone can… Continue

I've been adding the exceptional pictures to my favorites by clicking the heart when they are loaded. Then when I'm sitting back with a coffee, I play a slide show. It's great, thanks all.

Adding Dragonfly ID aids in a special album

FYI folks, I am adding several images and "mini-posters" which will help solving ID issues with dragonflies/damselflies in an album on my page. It is my understanding these will appear in the photos on the main page until they get buried by newer images. I hope the images will be of some help and please feel free to check them out/comment/make constructive criticism, etc. An example is included below, the thorax pattern of a Shadow Darner (the likeliest Darner to be flying in… Continue

Talking crows

Anybody have any experiences with hearing a crow talk? In the Parlee Beach area there is a crow we refer to as the "Hello Crow". He has been around for the last 20 years or so and he calls out his plaintive little hello most days.

There was an article on him a couple of years ago in the T&T..apparently he was found as a nestling and raised by a family in the bluff who named him Banjo. They would say Hello to him every time they brought him food and he learned how to say it back. It is… Continue

marsh bird sightings

in answer to Peg.. we had never seen these birds on the marsh before this particular high tide and we have lived in Riverview about 3 years now. It was actually the different cries that led us to them, a very distinct sound they have. Since that high tide we have noticed them on a couple of other occasions. We have also seen sandpipers at low tide on the now mud flats while driving across the causeway. Since the causeway has opened we have seen more birds of different species than ever before,… Continue

Fall migration

This morning my daughter Olivia and I spent some time looking for Lady Beetles down near Breau Creek, which runs though the property here in Pelerin (near St-Antoine). On the way by the creek, we flushed about 140 ducks (mostly Mallards, a few Black and at least one pair of Pintail) "hiding from the hunters". On the south side of the creek. 6 or 7 Ruby-crowned Kinglets were foraging, along with a few WT Sparrows.

Redheads [Fuligule à tête rouge] in a Salisbury Lagoon

I was walking on the Salisbury Iron Bridge this morning (October 14, 2010) and I thought I could see a red headed duck in the Salisbury clarifier lagoon. So I headed for the lagoon to check and sure enough there were three Redheads [Fuligule à tête rouge], two male and a female. Of course I hadn’t taken the camera with me this morning.…

Dragonfly/Damselfly Group

Hi folks,

To anyone interested, I have indeed created a dragonfly group on this site with a few early associated discussion topics. If you would like to know more and possibly join, just click on group and go into the "NB Odonata group" on the lower left-hand side which is the only one there to date. In there, myself and other capable members will try to answer questions and direct folks to appropriate resources to the best of our abilities, but like most of you I am still learning how to… Continue

Bird Houses Can Double as Roosting Box

My son painted this birdhouse when he was 3 and 4, the red was easy, the yellow and green, we taped off with masking tape so he could keep in the lines. He gave it to his mother for Christmas. When I noticed the hole was enlarged I thought I would make the edges…

Invitation to Create Groups

We invite anyone to create a group, you may want to start a geographical or special interest group. For example I invite Denis A. Doucet (AKA dddragonflynb) to start a Dragons and Damsels Group, if that is a topic you are interested in.
It doesn't have to be all about birds, we just had to name the network something. You never know what will turn up if it's easy for everyone to upload their pictures, example: Moncton Peregrines.
Any local clubs may want to form groups even if it's just…
