Day 251 - 8th September 2014 - Drowned Forests, Crab, Kingfisher, Cormorants and Red-Eyed Vireo

Another Monday has rolled around. Work today then supper with friends tonight. Looks like another fine day. Daylight doesn't come too early these days, at 6 am the stars are still out. I love the warm days and cool nights of fall but hate the shorter days. Not much I can do about that but roll with it.
Got caught in the rain on my morning walk yesterday but then it cleared into a beautiful day. Since we are invited out to supper  thought I'd do a batch of brown bread rolls to take with us. Started those off early and had them all baked by noon. Larry cut, split and threw more wood in the basement. It's getting done. By the time the basement is full, we'll be building our first fire, I'm sure. Decided to take a run to Cape Sable Island and see what was around for shorebirds. Boy what a disappointing trip - nothing to speak of. Oh well that's birding. It was a beautiful day to be out and around. Lots of gulls and cormorants and I did catch a Kingfisher. We drove home via Villagedale through to Port Clyde. There are some ponds along that route that are sometimes busy.
 Colors of fall have started.
 We were at the Hawk beach - beautiful water and sky.
At the Hawk Beach is the Drowned Forest.
 Even found a live Crab.
 A group of Cormorants were enjoying the sun on the rocks at Daniel's Head.
 Spotted this female Belted Kingfisher at Stoney Island.
Yellowlegs at Thomasville.

 Great Blue Heron flying off, after I made Larry turn around and go back to get him.
The Chickadee was singing to me.
 Curious Red-Eyed Vireo in the apple tree. There were quite a few in the backyard at supper time.
Yellow Rumped Warbler.

Enjoy your day!
