Hybrid Goose https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2021/2/hybrid-goose

A hybrid goose, swimming with the Canada geese.

This goose is bigger and bulkier then the other geese and is on top of the pecking order. It is rare to see other geese push it around when this hybrid usually does the pushing.

I first seen this goose in March 2020 and is usually in the area with brief absences.

Meet Goose #1038-06303 https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2021/2/meet-goose-1038-06303 This Canada goose has band number 1038-06303.

Species: Canada Goose
Age: Hatched in 2006 or earlier.
Sex: Female
Location: 31 KM W. Rigolet, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

Found on the Quequechan River Rail Trail 2/14/2021. 

A goose that is 15 years old that has traveled over 1000miles, from Labrador, Canada to Massachusetts, USA.
In addition, the goose is missing a web toe. One tough goose!
I'll keep on eye on the goose to see if it loiters in the area during the warmer months or if it leaves, possibly traveling back to Canada.

UPDATE: As of March 12, 2021 the goose was not observed.

One of the reasons I like to photograph nature is the behavior of animals and birds. This gull waited on the edge of the ice for the hooded mergansers to come up with something.

In this case, a hooded merganser came up from a dive with a large crayfish within it's bill. The gull gave chase and snatched the crayfish from the merganser.

Common Merganser https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2021/2/common-merganser

A female common merganser.

I was fortunate enough to this this beautiful bird fairly close on the Quequechan River Rail Trail. Usually, I see them in the distance and photos would not be very good.

The bird was cautious and keep a good eye to tis surroundings. I think what kept it fairly clam was the large presence of mallards, geese, and few hooded mergansers. Although, the hooded mergansers were farther away then the mallards. Mallards are a most curious duck too. I walked to the shoreline and they swam up to me, no doubt looking for a handout.

Osprey Wings: My Favorite Photo Of 2020 https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/12/osprey-wings-my-favorite-photo-of-2020 A photo site called Aminus3 asked what was your favorite photo of 2020.

My contribution is as follows:

Picking a favorite for the year is always a challenging decision. I chose this photo of the osprey for a couple of reasons.
There is emotional investment. For years I tried to find a place where the osprey consistently would dive in one place for fish. Finally in 2020 I found a place.
It is different then the usual osprey photo. The common photo of an osprey is with a fish within its talons. This photo has no fish in the talons.
Finally, I like the body and wing position.
This is why it is one of my 2020 favorites.

My favorite photo of 2020

Quequechan River Rail Trail https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/12/quequechan-river-rail-trail First snow of the season during late autumn.

The Alfred J. Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail, (I called it the "Q-Trail") is a trail on the bed of former railroad tracks along the Quequechan River. The river name is a Native American word for "Falling Water" or "Leaping Waters" in Wamponoag, the tribe that once settled in the region.
In its original form, the river had eight waterfalls as it traveled to Mount Hope Bay.
However, during the 1800s the river was dammed for the textile industry which, sadly, destroyed the waterfalls which now is buried, piped underground emptying into the bay.
Part of the river exists along the former railroad tracks which now serve a trail to walk or bicycle. It is a favorite place of mine to go to. If one looks closely, there is an abundance of wildlife during different seasons.

Blackpoll Warbler Still Around https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/11/blackpoll-warbler-still-around This blackpoll warbler has become a mini obsession with me. Still at the Quequechan River Rail Trail but not everyday. Like many warblers, erratic, and darting between the branches making photos challenging. Listed as rare for date/time for location. When the bird is around, you'll get good looks at it. However, I don't know how much longer it'll be around. I thought last week was it but I've seen it two days in a row now.

Swan Fight https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/9/swan-fight

A new pair of swans moved in and picked on the resident summer family of 2 adults and 3 juveniles.

One of the intruder swans were very aggressive and picked on this juvenile.

The resident adult swan seen the new intruder coming and called her juveniles but the juveniles went in the other direction from the adult calling.

As the intruder came close to the juveniles, the parent swam over and lured the intruder away. But, the juveniles were still blocked from joining its parent. This one got attacked and escaped.

The family were chased away by the intruder - they all survived this encounter.

Fogland Frog https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/7/fogland-frog

This frog lawn ornament self tilted Fogland Frog sits on a fence post by the road.

On a certain road there is a frog lawn ornament sitting on a fence post. There is no yard nearby, nor a house. It is a single fence post by the side of the road with a ornamental frog on it. I don't know why, but I found it amusing and I would smile.

The pictured frog is not the original frog, for other frogs have sat upon this post. The changing of the frogs was through unfortunate means.

It is the third one I can remember. The first frog was taken from the post - just gone. No sign or evidence of what happen to it. I can only speculate that someone may have taken it.

When another frog took its place, that frog did not last long. It appeared someone had broke it. The broken frog sat there for a little while. How sad I thought, a half broken frog on the fence post. 

The now named, "Fogland Frog" sits upon the post with friends and perhaps, when people drive by, they can smile once more.

Quequechan River Rail Trail https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/6/quequechan-river-rail-trail I had one of my best days on the quequechan River rail trail. I observed 24 different species of birds in one day.

The Quequechan River Rail Trail (QRRT) is on the bed of former railroad tracks. Despite being in an urban environment the trail offers a refuge for walkers, bicyclists, and wildlife.

If one looks closely, there is an abundant of wildlife during different seasons and there may be a surprise find!

An American Redstart Fledgling

An interesting morning at  Emilie Ruecker Wildlife Refuge. The walk into the refuge did not reveal much but on the way back to the parking lot. We spotted an american redstart. Then off to the side I noticed - later ID'ed as a female american redstart. Following the the female to get a better photo in which I was unable to, I then noticed it feeding a fledgling.

I do not see many redstarts and to see a fledgling was a good moment in time.

One day I noticed a rabbit stretched out in my yard. Looking very secure and comfortable.

So comfortable, the rabbit fell asleep for a few moments. Awoken only by the alarm call of a grackle.

Then, turned around and started to have a rabbit breakfast by munching on the grass. Now only if, he ate a lot, then I would not have to mow!

While trekking through a wildlife refuge we were looking in the pine trees for owls. We received a tip from our last visit from a person on the trail who informed us they had seen an owl. During the last few days, each time we visited the area, we scoured the area. This day we struck gold!

We had died a little darling son
He was our graceful pride
We loved him perhaps to well
For soon he slept and died
Dry up your tears and weep no more
He is not dead but gone before
Let us not repine but be content
He was not ours he was but lent
This is my beloved son, hear ye...(last word unreadable)

The other taller horse gave a glance and I invited the horse over. After an apple and with foam on the mouth, the head over the fence for more.

Common Burying Ground in Newport https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/8/common-burying-ground-in-newport

I recently went on a guided tour of the Common Burying Ground in Newport, RI presented by Newport's Historic Cemetery Advisory Commission. The tours are free and are from June to August. This cemetery has one of the largest colonial-era gravestones as well as the largest group of African American gravestones in Colonial New England .

A most most interesting and informative tour. Discussing the directional placement of the headstones and in the early years had a footstone as well. Also, information of the stone carvers, types of stone used during the periods, the artwork on the markers, types of markers, and some unusual markers too.

Osprey bringing fish to the nest

While waiting for the Osprey to return to the nest, a passerby informed me that the parents had left the nest for a short time. 
While the parents were absent, a gull landed on the nest and tried to eat the chicks. Well, the gull didn't see the other parent osprey in a tree nearby.

The osprey and gull fought with the death of the gull. Then the victorious osprey fed the gull to the chicks! Whoa!

If you look carefully, you can see the chicks near the mom in the nest.

Small stripped bass were feeding on small fish which appear to be alewife. These fish in a desperate attempt to escape the strippers, would jump and land on the rocks. Some fish made it back into the water on the next wave but others did not. This gull took advantage of the situation and gobbled a few fish for an easy meal.
