Ah, wide-eyed youth! They’re everywhere in Springtime. In the photo above, baby owls just arrived at a friend of a friend’s horse barn (they have since grown up to become a formidable mouse-patrol SWAT team).
Last weekend at Stamford Harbor: Cormorants colony nest on the breakwater’s marker #3
As we approached Stamford Lighthouse, twin osprey chicks in the nest at the very top screeched, “Mommy, WHERE ARE YOU AND OUR LUNCH LUNCH LUNCH?!”
Below: Busy birds fly over our friend, Dov, and Great Captains lighthouse. Cormorants colony nest in the trees on the south side of the island; snowy egrets on the east; gulls on rocks everywhere. It’s a fantastic, noisy place! Birds rule.
Back at home (at last!) we toss our drysuits into the wash as 21-year-old Kuno (our parrot and blog avatar) moons the camera…he’s busy building “nests” in his cage and our bathtub, like he does every Spring. He’s still waiting for Alex to lay an egg (no, seriously, that’s what he wants). Kids!
