I’m not saying it shouldn’t sweep the Oscars but it should totally sweep the 2018 Oscars.
You heard it here.
A small duck with a big personality, the little male American Wigeon flew on the scene, disgruntling all the Mallards. He darted in and out of their feeding territory, foraging along the shoreline, while the Mallards let him know with no uncertainty, by nipping and chasing, that they did not want him there. American Wigeon was not deterred and just kept right on feeding.
Smaller than a Mallard but larger than a Bufflehead, the pretty male flashes a brilliant green swath across the eye and has a beautiful baby blue bill. They are also colloquially called “Baldplate” because the white patch atop his head resembles a bald man’s head.
Male American Wigeon and Male Mallard
According to naturalist and avian illustrator Barry van Dusen in “Bird Observer, “In Massachusetts, they are considered rare and local breeders, uncommon spring migrants, and locally common migrants in fall. They are also fairly common winter residents in a few localities. Spring migration occurs in April and fall migrants arrive in September with many remaining until their preferred ponds freeze over.”
After looking at the range map below, I wonder if our little American Wigeon has been here all winter or if he is a spring migrant. If you have seen an American Wigeon, please write and let us know. Thank you!
The Bold and the Beautiful
The Cape Ann Museum is pleased to celebrate Women’s History Month with a presentation on the life, loves and work of Margarett Sargent (1892 – 1978) by Cape Ann Museum docents Tamsen Endicott and Margaret Bernier on Saturday, March 25 at 2:00 p.m.
This program is free for Museum members or with Museum admission, paid on arrival. Space is limited; reservations are required. Reservations can be made by calling 978-283-0455 x10, emailing email@example.com or online through Eventbrite.
Margarett Sargent was a sculptor, painter and member of the National Association of Women Artists. Founded in 1892, NAWA is the oldest professional women’s arts organization in the United States, and counts among its earliest members a number of prominent Cape Ann artists whose work is represented in the Cape Ann Museum collections, including Anna Hyatt Huntington, Katharine Lane Weems and Theresa Bernstein.
Sargent was an early Modernist who rebelled against the societal expectations of her privileged Boston Brahmin family and embarked upon a career as an artist in the heady 1920s and 30s.
Tamsen Endicott is a docent at the Cape Ann Museum and leader of the Cape Ann Museum Book Club. A Rockport native, Tamsen enjoys history, genealogy and is pursuing graduate work in public history.
Margaret Bernier is also a docent at the Cape Ann Museum, and an Artist Member of the National Association of Women Artists, Inc.

The landscape chain design encircling the site of the world famous Leonard Craske Man at the Wheel sculpture is lovely and simple. The repeating rings are an aesthetic choice and practical. There’s an understated wide ‘berth’ that’s respectful yet beckoning; one indelible memorial and thousands of ripples.
Perhaps the broken post was a snow plow? Who knows. Wonder how often a break occurs?
The color photographs were taken this morning. The black and white photographs were by Gordon Parks from his 1940s FSA photographs. The granite cenotaph markers were added in 2000.
Boys in this Gordon Parks photo remain unidentified.

In a city of incredibly good eats how do you make yours stand out?
I stopped by Maritime Gloucester yesterday morning and checked out some of the progress on the pier and the aquarium. It is coming along beautifully and is pretty exciting. We clocked some serious hours in the Pocket Lab Aquarium when the boys were a bit younger and no doubt they’ll fall in love with the space all over again when they see the new digs!

Chris Stovall Brown joins The Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight 8:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 3.23.2017 ~ Put on your dancin shoes!
The Weal of fortune spins around this Thursday to land on Mr. Chris “Stovall” Brown again. One of your favorite glitar commandos and rust bucket vocallists, Chris and I often play together at O’Rielly’s (more on that later). He’s truly killer and a grate stage performer.
No bogosity here.We’re wealing in the biblically named Mr. Ephraim Lowell to help out on the skins. BTW, I don’t hear those alien voices much anymore, but I’m gonna wear my tinfoil hat anyhow, just for practice.
