August 16th - It Didn't Happen Today

This morning Phil and I took a quick trip out to Cranberry Marsh.  We met Doug Lockery and John Stirrat on the platform and they were talking about how lousy the day was going to be for raptor migration.  That made me feel a lot better about not being at Rosetta!  The marsh is quite pretty now because it's partly filled with Purple Loosestrife and it's in bloom.  Not a lot of bird activity there though.  Fairly quiet everywhere today it seemed.

Phil was actually photographing a Wild Turkey family
and not the Deer on Halls Road

Too hot for this Garter Snake

Tomorrow's another day!
