Welcome to a photographic journey through the fields, woods, and marshes of New England
Here I’ll be sharing some of my favorite photographs from my forthcoming book Naturally Curious. I’ll be updating my blog periodically with new images, new stories, and more glimpses of New England in all seasons.
COOPER HAWK SUCCESS
This winter I happened to be in the right place at the right time – a Cooper’s hawk swooped down out of the blue and nailed a pileated woodpecker (in the air) that I had been watching taking a nap on the trunk of a tree just prior to taking flight. They are roughly the same size, and it was all the hawk could do to carry the woodpecker into the woods, where he proceeded to kill and consume it.
