OWLS & OTHERS FROM THE NORTH SHORE OF MASSACHUSETTS AND ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE USA

Terns to Toads With a Few Hummers For Good Measure

A trip to Sandy Point State Reservation on August 29th found loads of  Terns
roosting at high tide. The young Forster's Tern below was nice to see.


But the Black Tern just off center in the image below was especially nice to come across.


Young Sanderling were feeding quite close at times. 


Closer to home... well... in the yard at home to be a bit more precise... the young Hummingbirds have taken over the yard. At least 5 youngsters chased each other around the yard with this one checking out the Butterfly Bush before joining back in the chase.


Another youngster checking me out from within the Trumpet Creeper


A Grasshopper managed to stumble into this Spiders web just off of the deck. That's quite a prize for a spider so small!


Another visitor to the yard today was this one eyed Toad.


But I must say.. the one eye it does have is quite spectacular!
