Another Week Close to Home

First, heartfelt thanks to the NationalGrid crew that made it out here during the Saturday storm, soon after we lost power. The poles are pretty inaccessible in the Audubon Sanctuary, and a second truck was called in to cut a path in the right-of-way by chain saw. In the dark they made repairs. The lineman admitted afterward that it was a pretty challenging climb in the driving rain – our anemometer showed gusts to 58mph.

Wires down in the Audubon Sanctuary; Dog Bar breakwater beyond
The National Grid crew worked mostly after dark in extreme storm conditions
Our veteran feeder provided entertainment all week; Red-bellied Woodpecker
We added a suet cage, and the diners showed their appreciation
But competition continued at the feeder, with today’s snowy background
Excuse me!
Chickadees await their turn
A Downy Woodpecker and a Tufted Titmouse
A Boston mirage, beyond Nahant
And the requisite sunset
