First I have to let you all know that these are not great pictures. Now I'm not going to make any excuses except Morgan and I had to very nervous dogs with us in the car. We left with them because our realtor was showing the house and we thought we'd go sight seeing and bird watching. But we forgot our binoculars. Luckily I grabbed the camera.
This was the quick shot of the sunrise that morning.
We went over the Isthmus and found open water with Golden-eye, but because I'm not the best at immature ducks, I had a hard time identifying them. Some of the locals for Roy. Mr Ole my Elkhound got a little sniffy, barky when we stopped here. I love this tree and have photographed it more than once. Well, Sharon, here are my turkeys but can't say my photograph is very good. We saw about 18 all together. Morgan and I LOVED this sign! We thought they should have a guinea on there as well! A lovely old Cemetery.We were so excited to see two Ravens. Now let me tell you when I saw these two birds right next to the road I had a feeling they weren't crows so I hit the brake and since all the roads were covered in packed ice the anti-locks kicked in and of course the Ravens wouldn't have any of that, so off they went. I grabbed the camera and got what I could, but Morgan and I could hear their distinct croaking as they flew away. Cropped and totally out of focus. Sorry. A couple more unknown ducks back around the Isthmus. Back on the mainland on endless hard packed icy roads.We also saw three Rough-legged hawks, 4 Flickers and a number of Tree Sparrows. Here is a link to Point Peninsula for anyone interested.
