We caught a hummingbird sampling the jewel weeds along our driveway last week.
We were surprised to spot this crow-sized bird along the shore of the no-name pond the other day. At the time and after checking my references, I am not sure if this is a heron or a bittern (a least bittern is a good possibility from field mark descriptions).
As mentioned previously, our yard has become a regular hunting ground for an energetic robin. We see her getting worms and other small things for a likely nest somewhere nearby.
In a close encounter on a Maine pond, a gang of loons queried why I was there
