October 1st. Cloudy with rain on the way.

 

 

 

 

 

Great Egret (Ardea alba) still around.

 

 

Ha! Hard to see but it caught a slender fish.

 

 

Then a short flight to hang out with its duck buddies.

 

 

 

 

 

October 2nd. Sunshine just touching the tree tops.

October 4th. Winterberry (Ilex verticillata).

A midday excursion "off trail" to Rocky Neck State Park. Lots of Snowy Egrets, Great Egrets, Cormorants, and more. Click here for my FlickR album of those photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/stanmalcolm/albums/72157711192390106
