Cranberry Marsh/Nature Notes

 Chickadee eating seeds of dried goldenrod

Watching several goldenrod stems swing gently when there was no breeze mad me curious. Up popped this black-capped chickadee.

 Burs ready ready to grab on to your clothes and travel

Platform for osprey in amongst the bare stems of red osier dogwood

Osprey build their nests close to easy fishing grounds. No nest here, though.

The Osprey nest photo is nice. I do recall a farm set aside for wildlife near here where we live and they had a large field, more or less in a wild state, but with specific bird houses set up on posts and I think they were all occupied.

We do have osprey here and they are fine-looking birds. Love that cranberry marsh. Are these actually cranberries that you could pick? Sorry, but I'm a wee bit ignorant about cranberries. Well, other things, too. But...

Sunday morning, on the 7th hole of our golf course, I hit my tee shot right of a stand of trees, and at the moment after, a beautiful bald eagle flew out of the trees, into the sky to disappear. My camera was back in the golf cart. But what a sight!

I love the way the dried goldenrod looks and glad the chickadee was finding something to eat. I can remember getting covered in burs as a child when I would crawl into undergrowth. The red osier dogwood stems are gorgeous.
