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.

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.

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.

Quequechan River Rail Trail https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/12/quequechan-river-rail-trail QRRT #P1050440QRRT #P1050440Andy Wilson / andyslens.com 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 SWANS: Mute SwanSWANS: Mute Swanby Andy Wilson

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 Lawn Ornament - FrogLawn Ornament - FrogAndy Wilson / andyslens.com

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.

Rabbit Story https://andyslens.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/6/rabbit-story A Rabbit In My Yard

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!
