Small rapids on a stream in Old Mine Park, Trumbull, Connecticut

Old Mine Park – Trumbull, Connecticut

I was driving around a couple of days ago after work looking for something interesting to photograph when I came upon these scenes in Trumbull, Connecticut’s Old Mine Park.  Most times of the year, it wouldn’t be very interesting, but I really liked the fall foliage.

Can you see me now?

This entry is part 4 of 13 in the series Birds at My BirdfeederA few weeks ago, this bird was on the ground close to the bird feeder.  I’m pretty sure it’s a Dark-Eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis), but I can’t decide if it’s a male or female (I’m guessing female, but could be wrong).  He […]

Osprey Photos from Hammonasset Beach State Park

I had the day off today and visited Hammonasset Beach State Park.  I was hoping that maybe I would catch some of the migratory birds coming in, but I think because it’s been such a cold, wet Spring, the migrations may be slightly behind this year. At the park, I walked out to Willard’s Island, […]
