Henry David Thoreau once said, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
I think in in one form or another all birders and for that matter all nature lovers hold words like those close to their hearts throughout their lives.
Here’s the second batch of photos from yesterday’s BCAS Mill Creek walk. Couldn’t make it? Fear not. Our next BCAS Meadowlands walk is Sunday, Aug. 6, at DeKorte Park at 9 am. For info email email@example.com or call 201-230-4983.
Check out this amazing sequence of a Red-winged Blackbird at DeKorte on Sunday making a valiant effort to get from dangerous waters to the safety of the shoreline.
The Archer family sent in the photos along with the following message:
On Sunday, our enjoyment of the Gazebo view turned to alarm, when we spotted a poor little swallow crying out, surrounded by vast water.
The swallow furiously flapped its wings, trying to “swim” in the direction of the faraway shore. Many times the swallow fell under the water and we feared the worst.
We breathed sighs of relief, when the swallow emerged again. Its fellow swallows swooped, urging their friend to keep going, as we hoped and prayed from the Gazebo.
Tireless and determined, this little bird made it! What spirit! What a will to survive!
