Happy Christmas!

We visited Figgate Park today and this robin came over to wish us a happy Christmas!

We were also delighted to see, for the first time, two of the famous black bunnies of the Figgie! Neither of them wanted to be photographed and this was our best shot - yes, look closely and there is a black rabbit hiding in there!

There were lots of birds on the pond

including goosanders (this is a male)

and tufted ducks (female at back, male at front)


though some of them did not want to be photographed, the ripples in this photo below show where a tufted duck has just dived, leaving a rather bemused black headed gull (in winter plumage and hence without its black head) looking on


So, hope you all have a happy and green Christmas!

We had a green Christmas here in Maine, USA. I saw a flock of Bluebirds early in the morning. My best gift of the day!
