Diving Migrants

On autumn mornings

As I throw back the curtains

I see the migrants!

Hooded Mergansers,

Wood Ducks, and some Buffleheads:

Diving visitors

They stop off briefly

To feed and dive in our cove,

A handful each time.

Elusive because

They dive and pop up elsewhere -

I can't capture them!

I snagged a small pack of migratory Snow Geese this week, a new lifer!
