Osprey have returned !!

Sunday, March 25, we were at the picnic area for the first time in a week.  Two pair of osprey were circling around the treetops.  One pair had taken up residence on one of the osprey nesting platforms in Presley Creek adjacent to Lot 52.

Osprey . . . also called “Fish Hawk.” Scientific name Pandion haliaetus.

The flock of Canada Geese normally in Presley Creek was nowhere to be seen or heard — probably inland feeding.

A group of 16 Bufflehead were in the Potomac about 100 yards offshore, feeding.

Save the Date: Alpaca shearing

The Hancock family, our neighbors at Critter Corner, will be shearing their alpacas on
  • Saturday, April 7
  • 9:00 – 11:00 AM. 
Everyone is  invited to the alpaca shearing!!

A traveling Australian crew shears the alpacas — it’s very interesting to watch.

The alpaca coat is two layers of wool — a rough outer layer and a soft, warm inner layer.  After the wool is sheared, the two types of wool are separated.

Very warm gloves, socks, mittens, and the like made from the inner wool will be for sale.

There is no charge to watch the shearing.  Bring your camera or video camera.  Please park as far off the road as you can.  If you have a dog, please leave the dog at home or in the car so as not to stampede the alpacas.
