Interview with autumn's Black-crowned Night-Herons
Familiar "locals" standing watch in Pump House pine tree stand, Silver eel Cove. This harbor is a wonderful place to observe Fishers Island wildlife - especially while waiting for the evening ferry.
*Footage is a bit blurred, but audio of Heron's "quark - quark" is unique!
Autumn of the Dragonfly
While Islanders were grateful to see more Monarch butterflies (than in previous years) flitting across their paths during July & August here on Fishers Island; I have noted Dragonflies reigning during September & October. In this moment as they feed within the Parade Grounds- I receive a "swarm welcome"!
My Neck of the Woods Radio
I chat with lifelong Islander John Peishoff about the necessity and importance of Fishers Island Stewardship. To date, he's picked-up, hauled, and taken to the dump 889 wire Lobster pots-line them together; that's over a half mile!
Atukan - Akun "We are One"!
Stewards of my Tribe drop by My Neck of the Woods, Fishers Island to report on our "Nation's work" - we are a unique people of an Island; and we are committed to care for it.
The L.O.G. Tournament
Rounding the bend up east at Big Club golf course, I happen upon young painted turtles - vying for champion- in a log rolling competition.
Fogged In Friends
A Shroud of fog hovers over Silver Eel Cove and these "fishermen" hunker down after a morning's catch.
