This past weekend we went over to the salt marsh to see what might be going on, and also to check in on our recently returned buddy Radar.
At first I didn’t see Radar, but looking out across the marsh I thought I saw an egret head poking up from among the reeds. Within a short time the egret came busting up and out of the reed area and flew across the water. I immediately saw it was Radar.
He flew over to the other end and started fishing. So once again, all is right with the marsh world.
Da quanto vedo tramite le tue bellissime foto, Radar sta proprio bene e gode di ottima salute 🙂
Grazie Pat and Happy New Year!
Always good to know when familiar ‘faces’ show up! Wishing you a happy new year!
We are all glad he is back “home” again.
Best wishes for a Happy New Year to you as well.
Quick “obviously!” kind’a questions if I may, Phil: Is someone still tracking him and his travels via that transmitter? If so, where-how can we know where he had been those many weeks he was away from the marsh? Now if not, why is poor Radar still wearing that thinga-ma-jig?!
I’m not 100% sure but I don’t think he can be continuously tracked in real time. I believe it’s essentially a mortality tracker to determine how long he lives vs. how long similar birds live that were in the area of the huge gulf oil spill back in 2010.
Happy New Year! Thanks for the reply. 😀 We all just want the great Radar to live a long, happy, healthy life. He is after all the king of the marsh.
Wonderful photos of Radar. He obviously feels at home in your marsh. 🙂
He not only feels at home there, he thinks he owns the place. 🙂
I think thats Radars home!!!!! Beautiful photos of him as always…and, wishing you a Happy New Year and all the beautiful nature and animals you continue to photograph to only get more and more abundant…!!! Thanks Phil for sending me these amazing pictures….:-))))
Just so stunning. Love your photos. 😀
I love the background in these – the colour and the contrasts – beautiful!
