Anhinga, snakebird

White Mountains, Nov.3-4

We went to the top of Mount Eisenhower. As you see, some gray jays there were brave enough to eat from a human hand. It felt great too -- I had 4 peanuts on my palm, a jay landed, ate one of them, got another one and flew away, then came back for the other two. Three jays followed us for quite a while on our way up. We spent some of the next day on the shore of the Saco River at the Attitash ski resort, not very far from the place where we stayed.
