Oh happy day!

It may be winter by the calendar, but spring is here and summer is on the way. That’s according to the thermometer and the apparel I see in the park. I wore a light jacket this morning but had to take it off and sling it over the strap of my camera bag long before I finished my walk. The windows are open and the house is airing out, but I’m still expecting the other shoe to drop…in the form of a snow storm. That would be much more typical weather for spring in Ohio, but I’m loving this atypical early spring. Talk about March going out like a lamb. It looks very much as if it will. In the park, the birds are chirping and the tree frogs are making a racket in the bog. It’s unbelievable! Here are a few birds that I saw this morning:

A handsome, but shy, chickadee


A cardinal willing to pose. After stuffing his beak with peanuts, he walked to the edge of the stump and stared at me and my camera…



And a titmouse that refused to hold still. He dashed in, grabbed peanuts, and zoomed away before I could quite click the shutter…You can tell by the little bit of motion blur.


That’s the scene on the south shore of Lake Erie today. The prediction for the week ahead is more of the same kind of weather…a happy day for a photo walker! Thanks for stopping by!
