What a wonderful discovery to find this group! This is my first
post so I hope I'm doing it right.
I am just South of the Ace Basin (the tundra swans should have left
Bear Island by the full moon this week, so some of you may see them
I have a story to share. About two weeks ago I was sitting on the
deck when a Carolina Chickadee flew down and perched on my knee and
stayed for a few seconds. As soon as he left, I bolted in the house to
get the bird book to verify my identification. I just got my new
Sibley's Guide open to the Carolina Chickadee section, when back he came
and perched right at the top of the open page and posed for a quick
comparison to the pictures. Where was my camera when I needed it!
Also, about a month ago I saw what must have been little hooded
mergansers swim by on the Spring tide. I saw them two or three days in
a row, and haven't seen them since.
I am a beginner at this, so if I'm boring or simplistic, just let me
