On this brisk November morning, the usual suspects for this season congregated on the Bay, flotillas of American coots, Mallards and Canadian geese, Bufflehead ducks, and in their midst, a muscled Herring gull. the prik prik of the coots was everywhere. Then chaos erupted with shrill warning honks by the geese. Two Bald eagles swooped down from the sky, circling the bay, swerving ever so close to the water surface at the cattail by the Picnic Point peninsula and then lifting again just above tree level — a majestic sight. Meanwhile the coots and all the others hurried toward the safety of the eastern end of the bay. Many other visitors to Preserve on this Saturday morning enjoyed the fresh air and beautiful sights and sounds. Photos and report Gisela Kutzbach.
