Low Tide on Niles Pond — pat morss

The drought is continuing to empty Niles Pond. Starting here with a water level comparison to a year ago.

SEPTEMBER 2021. Canada Geese are standing on a sumerged rock
AUGUST 2022. Same rock with young and adult Little Blue Herons
“I don’t think we can do anything about it”
Never seen so many young Little Blue Herons (and maybe an egret or two)
And never seen these rocks, well out into the pond (Great Blue Heron, center)
We’ll make the most of it with the “Niles Pond Greasy Pole” competition
Over the causeway in Brace Cove, staging the “One-legged, stand-in-the-surf” contest
The Laughing Gulls really weren’t amused
But a Green Heron was enjoying the view of both venues from the bleachers

Backyard Adventurer

Our backyard is ceaselessly entertaining. It’s August, so the bees start to gather in and near the hummingbird nectar. This poses a dilemma for the hungry hummingbirds. Sometimes they decide it’s best to all get along together for a common purpose. There’s a lesson in there! At the same time, a mother deer and fawn also come for a visit and seem unthreatened by much bigger creatures like us. They allow us to watch and photograph freely while they go about their natural business. We love our life in Gloucester!
