Yesterday while walking along the West River trail across behind the Marina at the far end of the cornfield I saw a bright blue Indigo Bunting - the first one I have photographed. The pictures are not as sharp as I'd like them to be but here they are:
This morning I went back hoping for better pictures, but no such luck. I did however see a great egret on the sandbank in the West River.
Yesterday in Keene by the pond behind the Target store I saw a belted kingfisher hovering over the water, then plunging down to grab a fish. Here are some photos of the bird hovering - the drop into the water was too fast for my camera.
Here is the bird in repose. I think it was waiting for me to go away, which I did.
