The Pitter Patter of Little Feet

jan-212We awakened this morning to the pitter patter of little feet – above our heads.  We looked up and the skylight was covered with what I think were Eastern Starlings that were taking advantage of the ice melting off the skylight.jan-214

This one looks a little bit like a penguin.  I’m not sure about that eye!  Then while we had breakfast, we saw a seal float by on an ice floe as the tide went out in the Great South Bay.  All this wildlife while I was still in my jammies!

Later in the day, we took a walk to see more wildlife along the Fire island inlet.  We saw lots of deer, more seals, a hawk and some plovers.  We saw almost just as much from the comfort of home.

  1. Hi Lynne,

    Don’t you just love those Starlings. I too have a skylight over my bed and they do the same thing. I wonder if it’s the same flock going up & down the island. I live in Robbins Rest year round.
    Your knitted work is great. I teach knitting and have a knitting group here in Robbins Rest every Thurs afternoon. You are very welcome to come and join us. There are a few of the knitters that come from your end.
    By the way- Are you on Ravelry?
