More Cedar Waxwings!!! Look around when you visit #Oriskanybattlefield, #fortstanwix, and #SteubenmemorialSHS. There is plenty of history to see and experience, but there is also plenty of wildlife and fauna! These are some Cedar Waxwings who visited the fort not too long ago. According to #cornelllabofornithology, Waxwings eat so much fruit that they have been known to get intoxicated when they eat overripe berries. ( 📷- O.S.R.)

One of my favorite birds a sweet little backyard yellow warbler darting about on the tree branches, showing typical warbler behavior. Look for the bright yellow movement fluttering about with short pauses. I added a sample of their song at the end. In the video I could hear the music of the song sparrows and starlings which are also my favorites. God is so good. Every time I hear the songs of wildlife I always think of the words "music of the spheres" for some reason.🎶❤️ #backyardbirding #healing #soothing #warblers #wildlife #northeastwildlife #musicofthespheres #ilovesongbirds

"Beavers do better work than the Corps of Engineers" -Mike Todd

Tupper is not a beaver, but he is the first known 'Hamster Ranger' in the National Park Service. He is a Winter White Hamster. His uniform is a little big on him, but he sure looks good in it! Did you know that rodents were an important part of fort life here at #FortStanwix? The fur of large rodents, such as beavers, was highly sought after for its thickness and ability to repel water. These guys were almost hunted to extinction, but luckily they made a come back. They are very important ecosystem engineers. You can still see them regularly along the #mohawkrivertrail and the #eriecanaltrail. Come visit Tupper as well and he will tell you all about the rodents of the Mohawk Valley.

"even if a snake is not poisonous, it should pretend to be venomous" - Chanakya
.
This #easterngartersnake is harmless, though he can still bite if pestered. Did you know there is a difference between #venemous and #posionous? Venom is injected and poison, in this context, is absorbed through the skin. We encourage you to enjoy wildlife encounters within our parks, but please leave wildlife be, especially if you don't know if they're dangerous! You can see beautiful wildlife along the #eriecanaltrail and the #mohawkrivertrail. \(📷 - OSR)

I am still working with the Kittiwake Colonies along the Northumberland Coast. These images taken at Braidcarr Point, North Sunderland show the different development of the young. Some are still little balls of fluffy feathers quite dependent on the parent bird, others aged over 42 days have fledged, although still slightly dependent on the parent bird they can now start to feed themselves. This Colony will have gone by early August, leaving any unfledged birds to the fate of nature!

Kittiwake Colony Braidcarr Point, North Sunderland, Northumberland.
Parent bird feeding chick by regurgitating food.
Kittiwakes feed on small surface shoaling fish and crustaceans caught offshore. Although they scavenge at fishing vessels, they do not frequent rubbish tips. They forage in flocks in places where prey concentrate, often with auks, terns or cormorants. They capture their prey with the bill and swallow it whole. Food intended for the chicks is stored in the crop and regurgitated at the nest. #iancookphotography #kittiwake #kittiwakes #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildseabird #nikon #nature #nikond800e #nikond800ephotography #northumberland #northsunderland #northumberland_uk #northeastwildlife #northumberland_uk #northumberlandcounty #northumberlandcoastaonb #northumberlandgazette #jessopssummer #jessopsmoment #bestoftheday #bestnatureshot #bestnatureshots #nationaltrust #naturalengland #nationaltrustnortheast #naturalhistorysocietyofnorthumbria #nature #total_uk

“She has a memory of trees and fields and nothing more.” ― James Thurber .
In some ways, that could be a splendid way to spend your day. Take a nice stroll along the Erie Canal trail near Fort Stanwix and enjoy the scenery, wildlife, trees, and fields. Follow this deer’s example and take some time to sit back and relax in the woods….(📷 - RPR) .

Coquet Island Northumberland.
The island is owned by the Duke of Northumberland. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds manage the island as a bird reserve, for its important seabird colonies.
The most numerous species is the puffin, with over 18,000 pairs nesting, but the island is most important for the largest colony of the endangered roseate tern in Britain, which, thanks to conservation measures including the provision of nestboxes to protect the nests from gulls and bad weather, has risen to over 100 pairs. Other nesting birds include sandwich tern, common tern, Arctic tern, black-legged kittiwake, fulmar, three gull species, and eider duck.

The island is uninhabited in winter, but seasonal wardens are present throughout the summer to protect the nesting birds. Landing on Coquet Island for the general public is prohibited, but local boating companies from Amble sail close up to the island in good weather throughout the summer, allowing visitors to get good views of the puffins and roseate terns.

Coquet Lighthouse
Coquet Island also holds the remaining structure of a medieval monastery on the south western shore, which was largely incorporated into the 19th-century lighthouse and lighthouse keepers' cottages. Coquet Lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1841 at a cost of £3,268.
James Walker designed the lighthouse, which is a white square tower of sandstone, with walls more than one metre thick, surrounded by a turreted parapet. The first keeper at Coquet Lighthouse was William Darling, the elder brother of Grace Darling. The lighthouse is now automatic with no resident keeper.
