A Few Birds in the Upper New England States

In early October, we visited the six upper New England States to see the fall leaves (plus a couple of days in New York). I'm running behind in sharing this post but I decided to go ahead and post it before winter really sets in. I thought the leaves were gorgeous in certain places.



We were able to get some pictures of a few birds from the area to share.


In Stowe, Vermont, we saw a mallard drake on a pond at a hotel we stayed. This male duck has beautiful colors. 


His green head, gray flanks, and black tail-curl make him easy to identify. 




I thought this pic of the mallard drake and hen was interesting. Look close at the hen and you will notice she has a dark blue patch on her wing and a dull orange and black bill. 






Also in Stowe, we saw lots American Robins in a berry tree off the deck of our hotel room. 



The robins were having a feast on the berries.



One of the days of our trip, we rode the Cape Cod Central Railroad along the Cape Cod Canal in Massachusetts. Perched on a telephone pole along the canal was a Double-crested Cormorant.




I'll end with a collage of pics from the White Mountain National Park Lower Falls.



Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

Although we have visited New England often we've never experienced the beauty of the Fall season, thanks for sharing the stunning scenery and bird life with us on Mosaic Monday today.

As a born/bred New Englander, I am curious as to how you arrived at more than 6 New England states?!
Great photos, Judy. You hit it at the perfect time as the colors weren't that great this year, from what my siblings, who all still live there, told me...they were disappointed for the first time in many years that it was such a drab autumn.

Wow! The Fall leaves sure make a beautiful mosaic! How nice to get to travel and see so much. I love that part of the country in the Fall! Hugs!

Judy, Looks like you saw some wonderful color on your trip. I love the large tree with orange leaves. We really don't get orange leaves this far north. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D.

Beautiful! After we retired, tHe first long trip we took was to New England in the Fall! (We are from Oregon.). We loved being leaf peepers ... our headquarters for two months was an RV Park near Danville Vermont. Been quite a a long time ago now , but I'll never forget that trip. Thanks for your pictures and for the memories!
