Happy New Year, Slow End To 2017, Red Fox Favorites

Happy New Year to All. The last day of 2017 was not very productive photography wise. It was just to cold to stay out long. The heron were hunkered in areas out of the wind in the morning. I did get a passing flying shot of one with a broken leg that I have seen all year. The handicapped bird makes it fine.

In the afternoon found one bush with seeds on it that the bluebirds kept coming back to feed on. A Cedar Waxwing stopped for a second. Starlings also visited the bush from time to time. A few eagles were flying along the rivers edge. Saw one juvenile catch a fish too far away to photograph.

Colder start to the New Year in the forecast. Five degrees outdoors right now. Supposed to be one degree tomorrow morning. Will get out and try to find something. Seems like the critters are mainly enduring the cold. The exception being the birds at the feeder at home. Any time I look out the window the old Chinese Chestnut is covered in cardinals, titmice, chickadees, house finch, nuthatches. The ground littered with dark eyed juncos and sparrows. Stay warm on this New Years day…

  1. The herons look pretty cold.
    Those look like sumac berries the birds were eating. It’s odd that they don’t eat them here until spring. I’ve heard there isn’t much fat in them.
    Great shots of the foxes!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      This sumac bush looked much more dried out than those in our fields the last time I looked. Wonder if that is the reason? Thank You…
