Early October Miscellany

Immature green heron (Riverside, RI)

Tiny snapping turtle (Charles River Peninsula)

I poked it with a leaf to see if it was still alive. It moved.

The large bluebird contingent continues at the CRP. I sat in the warm October sun and watched them catch insects.

It's the same group that's been around for the last week or so. Palm warblers, pine warblers, and a lone house finch (that gets bossed around a bit by the bluebirds) and sits singing in the hickory tree.

I waited and waited for a good palm warbler shot but I was finally intimidated by the self-appointed chipmunk sentry (below).
