Beautiful birds!


I started this post from the “new post” link, chose the pictures I wanted to include, and added my keywords. It was fast and simple. Then, because I wanted to add this message, I clicked on “edit this” and typed my message. I have to say that it’s a quick and easy process.

I had a cold (about 28 degrees) walk in the park this morning, and, except for a few other walkers, I pretty much had the place to myself. Predictions are for warmer weather later this week. That’s when the hoards of people will appear. I have to confess that I like it this way,,,when it’s almost a private park just for a few friends, their dogs, and myself.

Thanks for stopping by today. You are always welcome to visit “my” park.

  1. Skip, you work has always been good, but lately I have noticed that it is even better! I know all the birds you caught on your outing except for the second one. Can you tell me what it is? I had one at my bird feeder for the first time yesterday! So small, so cute! Thanks, Lynda


    1. Thank you, Lynda. I love getting out to the park and capturing pictures of the birds. My photo walks have been limited this week because of the weather and a short (and successful) stay in the Cleveland Clinic. Hopefully I will get out later today. The second bird, the one wearing a black cap, is a black-capped chickadee. Is that the one you are asking about? Chickadees are friendly little birds and will sometimes eat right out of my hand if I hold out some seeds.


      1. I was in the Clinic for a cardiac ablation. It was successful, so thankfully my heart will no longer do the racing along at the exhausting 120+ beats per minute thing. After a night in the Clinic and two days rest at home, I’m back to normal (whatever normal is).


  2. Gorgeous – simply gorgeous (especially the first two images, I love the “look” on the first one)!! I agree, I love it when my nature center is practically empty! I had a cold walk around there yesterday, and it was fairly deserted (which also makes me a little nervous, since I’m always there by myself).


    1. Thank you for looking! I sometimes get a little nervous on the back trails when no one else is in sight, but, of course, usually there are enough people around to calm my jitters.
