Sunrise

More pix added to the ALBUM after one last visit to Tillman this evening, then home and throw stuff in bags and get ready to leave in am! Just got the house # and confirmed that we will have NO CELL SERVICE IN THE MOUNTAINS!

It's interesting that each evening, the waterfowl are in different locations in this swamp. Like finding Waldo.

Thanks buddy...
Enjoy yourselves tomorrow...

Our plans to go north today fizzled.
Looks like I'll be able to look for those chicken waterer-feeders after all tomorrow for Equill.
THEN possibly go north on a different home seeking adventure...

Sage> "No, she's not reg here. she doesn't play on the computer til all hours like we do. but I sent her the link to this thread before you said that!" Good.... I'm covered. She probably won't check back and see what I said and if she does.... she'll see I was joking. The last thing in the world that woman needs is AARP card toting juvenile delinquents jumping in that water with flippers and snorkels. The damage we'd do would be worse than what mute swans do!!! Loved your off to sleep photo!!! havalotta> just remember how much moolah you spend if you find any so I can pay you back!!! Thanks for trying to save me $$$!!!

Tillman Swamps is home to Great Blue Herons, Green Herons, Wood Ducks, Belted Kingfishers, Egrets and many more birds~

~Tillman Swamps in Western NY~-p1220972.1.jpg A Green Heron provided much viewing pleasure today, flying around, stalking, eating

~Tillman Swamps in Western NY~-p1220976.1.jpg while a Great Blue stayed way back

~Tillman Swamps in Western NY~-p1220984.1.jpg and a family of Wood Ducks remained just out of camera range
