And I'm not sure what they thought we were trying to pass off on them, so Mark took a few bites and they kept buzzing him.
Next time we DEFINITELY need to remember the seed. In addition to the Black-capped Chickadees, we also had several Bluejays and a very curious White-breasted Nuthatch...although he wasn't brave enough to land on Mark's hand.
After that we did a quick tour of the parking lot up at Quabbin Tower, but there was nothing so we moved on to the area in front of the Administration Building.
While we didn't have a Bald Eagle flying anywhere today, we did have an adult sitting on the nest tree out from the Administration Building. And we had a coyote crossing the ice again -- but only 1.
We were able to get both the eagle and coyote in the scope and show them to these 2 women from the Boston area...one of which was a visiting teacher in the U.S. for six months from Beijing. They were both very excited! We still had robins in the fruit trees, but no Cedar Waxwings today.
Before heading back to Worcester we decided to check the trout hatchery and do the loop from East Street down to Cold Spring Rd. and back up River Road.
Things hadn't changed much at the hatchery; although we didn't have a Bald Eagle this morning.
