Birding in Chagrin River Park

Packing my camera and a pocket full of peanuts, I  left for a trail walk on this sunny, but cold, morning. I had forgotten to bring my hat, but I decided to take a short walk anyway…just to stretch my legs and capture a few bird pictures. Setting the timer on my watch for 35 minutes I headed down the trail. When the timer went off, I was have too much fun to go home yet, so I tapped “repeat”  and continued down the trail. Here are a few of the birds I saw:

As I wrote in recent blog posts, my intention is to resume my habit of daily photo walks, combining my two favorite hobbies: photography and trailwalking. I only walked for about a mile and a half today, but that’s a start.

Join me again soon for another trail walk.
Don’t forget your camera. You never know what we will see.

      1. You see the joy when they see food Carolyn. The sparrows always look so woeful at the Park where I walk. The jays or cardinals, even the red-winged blackbird, will swoop down for a peanut when I feed the squirrels, but the sparrows have nothing. I made them a goody bag to spread out on the picnic tables where the squirrels hang out – they were happy. It was such a cold Winter and that cold air is hanging on – I do feel sorry for those poor birds.


  1. Great images! Love the birds – trying a new bird seed to see if the squirrels will leave the feeders alone and maybe I can get some shots of the birds.
