The shore was noisy this afternoon, with waves crashing on the rocks, tossing stones on the beach, spray pattering on logs and trashed seaweeds, with the rattle of stones rolling back down the beach as the waves retreated. The tide was going out, and the ocean didn't seem happy about it.

And in all the commotion, this little sparrow hopped about, carefree, just out of reach of the latest wave, picking invisible goodies off the rocks, probably tiny snails.

The rocks are wet from the last wave; they'll catch the next. But the bird will be elsewhere by then.

With tossed debris. Nothing to eat here; he returned, after the next wave, to the rocks.

At Willow Point.

  1. They are one of the few birds we occasionally see up at the cabin. They sure do hop around. I am going home tomorrow so Internet access will be off. I'll catch up when we get to town. I enjoy your nature posts. I always learn something new. - Margy


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
