#60 Remarque: "Nice Catch" . . .

It is the birds I notice most when seasons change.  I heard a loon call a few days ago, but not since.
I note the pelican's absence.  The bald eagles will remain as long as there's open water.  A little flotilla of mergangers dive for bait fish in front of the cabin...a fat kingfisher watches from a bare branch as gulls wheel.  The non-mirgratory partridge are fattening up for the winter.  The snowbirds and chickadees search for sunny hours.

Whispering wings fly overhead as ducks and geese leave the north country before freeze up.  The golden days of autumn are to be savored.
