This one’s for Follansbee…

Pat just called and frantically yelled to get my camera and come outside…

Here’s who came to visit the studio this afternoon…

She , or he, sat perched in this hickory for enough time for me to circle around and get the sun in the right angle and then sat long enough for us to call Sue and Zola to look out their windows and then an electric truck drove by and that was time to bolt…

It wasn’t until it had taken off that we saw there were two of them flying around together. When I came inside to look at the photos the other one was there all along…

The whole neighborhood came out to see and it was a wonderful break from a long day of painting shingles…You can just make her out in the upper left corner…my easel window in at the bottom right corner…

Someone told us they are living in a nest down the lane…now that they know their way to the studio I’ll be sure to leave some goldfish out for a snack…

  1. So beautiful….

  2. WOWWWW. well, ain’t that the dickens now. Yard birds no less. Nice shooting. Are you saying they are nesting on the creek? I had read of large groups of them on the Susquehanna down in MD just past ol’ muddy creek…

    I last saw the ones at work about a week ago; but have moved from the waterside to the woodside, so they might be around & I don’t see ’em. Good for you that Pat caught sight of them…will you send me JPEGs?

    • yeah, another neighbor was pulling in the lane and told Pat she had seen it so she called me and then called Sue and Zola who watched it from inside their house until it flew away…I thought of you the whole time. I’ve only ever seen them circling overhead and pretty far away. I’ll send jpegs. And any feathers that glide to the ground are mine…even though you’re not supposed to touch them. Finnegan is trained to bring them to me.
