November Musings from Aquinnah

by Lanny McDowell on November 15, 2008

Finches getting up-

I figure a very rough guess of eight to nine hundred goldfinches flying off the cliffs into a westerly head wind in flocks of 25 to 40.  Only one ‘grine was around, but that one had a field day.  Faster than a lazy bullet.

There are really no more than one or two “good” photos here.  Hopefully, in the aggregate, they tell of a couple of hours well spent at the Gay Head Cliffs and Squibnocket on the 11th, when the skies were full over Martha’s Vineyard and visions of Cave Swallows filled my avian dreams. 

  The Look-

 The Look plus intention-

Boys will be boys-

Near miss or lucky choice, depending…


 Now, in the absence of any reasonable segue, a NOPA.  Better late than never- 

 And sparrows by the swamp.  A miracle-

Parler?  Converse?  Hobnob?              Chat. 

Finally, back to the beach & Harleymania.

Birds are cool!  Lanny
