Sunday at Stewart Park

It was a sunny day yesterday and we took a walk in Stewart Park.  Tons of Geese!  Not much else bird wise.  The geese are fun to watch, although you have to take care where you walk. The willows still retain their leaves, which is unusual for this time of year.

Here are some photos from the jaunt.

Sapsucker in November

Veteran's Day was a day of reflection yesterday. It was also a lovely day to take a walk and to enjoy the sun highlighting Sapsucker Woods in Ithaca. Sam and I drove the short distance to the woods and enjoyed the walk around the pond.  There were geese to watch in the distance, but not a lot of other birds.  I presume that the hersons have left for warmer climes.  I did notice that there are now aerators in the pond, which are meant to keep the pond from freezing so the wintering birds have a resource for swimming and drinking.

Here are some of the shots I took along the way.
