October 13th. Dense fog at sunrise.


















October 17th. Some trees are nearly bare of leaves.












Looks like a young Eastern Phoebe (Sayornis phoebe).



American Beaver (Castor canadensis) motoring along with a stick in its mouth




































Now to embed the stick into the dam.









Beaver-made ripples.



October 18th. The Ghost Run is coming!



A female Belted Kingfisher (Ceryle alcyon). Noisy when they fly.






October 19th. Thirtynine degrees.



Seen but not photographed: two deer splashing through the marsh near the old beaver dam.



A male Downy Woodpecker (Picoides pubescens).



The female Belted Kingfisher (Ceryle alcyon) again.



October 19th, late afternoon at Cranberry Bog. A male Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) taking a bath.












His mate seems unimpressed.









October 22nd. Sunrise as I drove to the trail.









Full moon.



Blowing leaves off the trail. Sadly, much of the stone dust surface blows away too - as it does every year.















The moon again as clouds begin to obscure it.
