This one, I am told, was on Bedford Avenue. From the photographer:

Those are the seed packets that hang from the branches. Usually they’re straight, but they curve as they dry or ripen I guess.

Judging from the photo, it doesn’t seem like such a terrible place to be. Like if you were on a sailboat, or something.

Has anyone ever actually eaten a fish caught in the waters of Sheepshead Bay and lived to tell about it? It’s probably not as bad as eating a fish from the Gowanus Canal (can anything even live in that water?), but I can’t imagine it would be much better either.

They are on the far side of Emmons Avenue, of course. Or at least that’s where this wild thing was hanging out last week.

White Island (Source: Google Maps)

A group of New Yorkers hailing from all five boroughs gathered early Saturday morning at the Marine Park salt marsh for a rare canoeing adventure to White Island. The three-hour, complimentary guided tour was the second and last trip of the season, and the island (which is wrapping up construction), is only accessible by water and currently closed to those unaccompanied by an Urban Park Ranger.

Our visit was one of the first opportunities to see the island in the final phases of a $15 million restoration that began in 2011. After years of erosion and naturally shifting wetland topography, White Island – also known as Mau Mau Island – was re-shored, cleaned up, purged of invasive phragmites, and replanted with native grasses to serve as a habitat for migratory birds.

Read about our trip to the wilds of White Island, and see the pretty photos.

You know, like “Bird is the Word?” You people have no idea the far reaches of uncharted brain hemispheres I scour to come up with these headline gems.

OK, maybe it’s just my imagination running away with me again.

I wanted to use this as a Morning Mug, but I suppose it works as a puzzle too, which is how the photographer actually intended the image to be used in the first place.

As Anne Frank aptly wrote, “Where there’s hope, there’s life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.”

And, less depressingly, from the photographer himself:

This is a tree, cut down to the stump, bursting back to life. As Jeff Goldblum put it, “Life will, uh, uh, find a way.”

Those were the words of the photographer in an email to Sheepshead Bites, although it is difficult for me to think of anything that swims in its own poop as royalty. It is certainly the official bird of Sheepshead Bay. We love our swannies.
