All photos were taken during our October 26, 2020 walk, except for one panorama, taken on September 17, 2020.
The bird life was very active during our walk, The Chickadees and Magpies already posted about, but also the ducks, Canada Geese and Ravens. It was as if they knew the easy times were leaving, or perhaps that they were leaving. All but one of these shots was taken from the top of the South river bank in Riverbend, a rather spectacular vantage point 65 meters (213 feet) above the river.
Bird’s Eye View ©
Summer season all but flushed down fall’s drain,
who knows what’s going through tiny bird brains?
Splishing and splashing, soaring and thrashing,
as if, before their eyes, life was flashing.
Nonetheless, they continue unhindered,
not caring one wit, about cold winter.
Wet ducks swimming and all eating their fill,
geese flying formation, escaping chill.
Above, black raven soars, without worries
he’ll stay here and brave cold winter flurries.
Season after season, little is new,
even Covid can not change bird’s eye view.
