Good morning everyone on this beautiful Sunday! I hope the weather is extra nice today where you live and that you can get out and enjoy it, even for a little while. We actually had no rain yesterday, I think that’s only the third time in the last 3 weeks. But it was cloudy and cool, only made it up to 48F (9C) for a high. That’s very cool for this time of year, even for us. It should actually be 66F (19C) this time of year. Every year is different it seems, but even last year was warmer than this. Well, this week we are going to continue with birds for our pictures so I hope you will enjoy them. The first one is a N. American herring gull on a rock by the river.
This next one is a ring-billed gull also down by the river. This is actually a 2 year old.
Then we have a mother mallard duck with her ducklings which are already quite large at the time I took this photo.
Next we have a male ruby-throated hummingbird.
And here we have a female pileated woodpecker, a very large woodpecker and beautiful to see. I showed her one other time, but this is a different picture, taken at the same time as the other. They are such an amazing bird that I just had to show her again.
Well, I hope that you have enjoyed these pictures today. Have a great Sunday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
