I got to where I was supposed to go and there was nothing but quiet.......No bird song at all or other wild life for that matter. I decided to drive around some more and covered about 10 miles of prime birding spots to not see anything. Suddenly I drove past a man in his car with one of those fancy scopes attached to his camera. HA! I thought to myself, finally some potential. It was obvious this guy was a hard core birder with equipment as fancy as that!!! I waited for him to get his pictures and then drove past stretching my neck at what it was he was photographing and figuring out how I could get in on the action too. Guess what it was......Go Ahead..........A Titmouse and a squirrel. SOB!! If I take one more titmouse picture I am going to scream seriously I am. That there was a sure sign to me that the place was indeed dead if this serious birder was taking photos of these two.
Driving back and very disappointed I decided to stop at a cemetery in Worcester. The Canada geese were at this one too. No other birds were there except for crows and mallard ducks. Same as always. I feel as if I am in my own movie version of Groundhog Day here.
Lastly a picture of wild turkeys in Belchertown. The only bird picture I was able to get while in Western Mass.
