November 6th. Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) at Raymond Brook Marsh.

 

 

I was unable to see leg bands in any of my photos.

 

 

 

 

 

The bird was quite active, flying from perch to perch.

 

 

This perch was particularly skinny and the bird spent a lot of time trying to balance...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...before flying off for a better perch.

 

 

 

 

 

Peek-a-boo. I SEE YOU!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yet another perch...

 

 

 

 

 

...and off again.

 

 

Icing on the cake: a flock of Eastern Bluebirds (Sialia sialis).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

November 7th. Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) passing through the marsh.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last flower of Fall? Looks like Canada Hawkweed (Hieracium kalmii).

 

 

November 8th. Back to the marsh at around 4PM, hoping for a sunset. Showing promise.

 

 

Nice light on the invasive Giant Reed (Phragmites australis).

 

 

Warm light just touching the trees; moon above.

 

 

Sun briefly broke through beneath the clouds before setting.

 

 

 

 

 

Softer light as the sun went down.

 

 

A flock of birds (starlings, cowbirds?) noisily passed through.
