|Canada geese flying into land|
Yesterday, it was a beautiful day and warm with the temperature starting out in the 50s and going into the 60s. My son and I spent the morning at Daniel Webster Massachusetts Audubon Sanctuary in the morning blind. The sanctuary has two blinds, one at each end of the pool, morning and afternoon blind, so named because the location of the sun. There was a lot of passerines flitting around in the brush and bushes. However, none of them perched in a location where we could photograph them. The two main species that we photographed were painted turtles and Canada geese.
We started out with three painted turtles on the log and by the time we left, there were seven painted turtles all enjoying the bright, warm sun.

Initially, there were only a few Canada geese in the pool but as the morning wore on large groups flew in. The Canada geese put on a show with many of the geese bathing and preening. The geese would raise large splashes a water duck underneath the water and even bays upside down with their feet in the air.
