Earlier this week I was sitting on my back deck reading when I heard a loud "squawk". I looked up and saw an adult Sapsucker had landed in our Plum tree. And then I thought I saw a baby bird on a branch of the tree.Hmmm.. I thought, " so that's what all the loud squawking was about. I immediately put my book down and went into the house to fetch my camera. when I returned with my camera the adult, noisy sapsucker was gone, but the baby was still there! Wow! what a photographic opportunity. I took a few pictures of the baby bird with my closeup scope., I was delighted. But then I noticed the baby(?) hadn't moved at all. Was it even breathing? No, it wasn't! It wasn't a bird but a bird shaped growth on the branch! :-( Sometimes your eyes can deceive you. The bird shaped find is still there this morning as I just went out and took its picture!! It looks quite real doesn't it?

There are 63 covered bridges in the province of New Brunswick and I love finding them in those 'out of the way' places. I have photographed most all of them, with only about 4 or 5 yet to locate. I still have many photos yet to post on my New Brunswick Covered Bridges blog. If you would like to visit and see more pictures of Covered Bridges, just click on the picture above.
