PIC OF THE WEEK: 12/04/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA • James River near Varina
Notes: One of the things I enjoy most about the mid-Atlantic region is that we have such diverse seasons, especially since they come and go in fairly equal proportion. When late summer gives way to fall, species like this Osprey will nearly entirely vacate the local landscape. There is a quiet that begins to fill that void. The nearly constant vocalizations of this raptor go silent as they depart for a warmer climate to the south. However, even the impending cold will be marked with arrival of different wintering birds, and their sounds, into the area. They are seeking the same refuge here from their origins well to the north. Their infiltration into the local habitat brings many familiar sounds that have gone unheard since early last spring. The sharp pitched chips on Dark-eyed Junco and the pleasantly whistled song of the White-throated Sparrow add to nature’s ambiance for the winter. An additional wintering population of Bald Eagles along the lower James River, along with numerous species of ducks, also trickle into the scene. This eternal exchange of sounds, resonates in the cycle of our world’s endless flow. Sound is an intricate part of what perks my unwavering interest in the outdoors.
