Made a quick stop at Vassar Farm to hike through the front pond area in search of waterfowl, woodpeckers and whatever else crossed my path.
The common mergansers were back again with a new female joining them. It seems like every weekend I spend a few minutes waiting for just the right shot, and the one here was that moment I was looking forward to.
I didn’t see too much more after that. I did see a red-tailed hawk and a turkey vulture towards the end of the day, but there was more activity outside my new home! I woke up in the morning to the call of a pileated woodpecker! From there – juncos, woodpeckers, chickadees, titmice, and carolina wrens were all spotted in a matter of minutes. As quickly as they appeared, they disappeared just as quickly.
My wife and I also spent some time in the Town of Clinton (more on that later), so stay tuned for a writeup of that, plus the few photos from Vassar Farm. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
