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.
