Birds to brighten your day: May 12

A Day on Merganser Lake XXI

As you can tell, this post is mislabeled as it’s not a bird at all. I’ve been seeing for the past few weeks a fox run along the trail that runs behind my backyard (I’m assuming it’s the same fox.) Yesterday, the fox veered off the trail and cut into the deep woods. I, of course, went to check out the deep woods to see if I could find it. I did indeed find it, but it was fairly far away, as you can see from the photo. I still like the photo as it shows a wild animal in a very wild habitat.

For those who need their daily bird fix, below is a shot I got of a female eastern bluebird yesterday.

(Repeat text for context:  I’m running out of COVID-19 lockdown themes so from now until things get back to some semblance of normalcy, I will simply post my best photo from the previous day. You could say it fits because of its uncertainty and challenge. I’ll call the series “A Day on Merganser Lake,” even though that’s not the real name of the lake I live near in southwestern Connecticut, it’s just a nod to my favorite duck family.)
