Good morning on this terrific Tuesday! This is such beautiful weather we are having now. My walk to the river yesterday was fantastic. The sun was shining brightly, just a gentle southerly breeze and sitting on the bench was just so relaxing. There was a lot of bird activity, though most of them were not cooperating for pictures. Many new birds were around, mostly various species of warblers which are some of our most colorful birds. Unfortunately they are also very small birds so it’s necessary to be fairly close to get a good photo of them. But they tend to stay higher in the trees so that doesn’t work so good.
I have come to the conclusion that the best fishing must be on the other side of the river. That’s where all the fish eating ducks like to go and also the kingfishers. I would love to get a picture of a kingfisher, one bird high on my list, as is the common flicker, which isn’t too common around here it seems. Oh well, one of these days.
And here we go with today’s spring pics…
The wonderful granite rocky hills that dominate this area reaching upward from the river shore.
All of these granite hills being covered with pines, along the river here it’s mainly white pine and red pine.
I did, however, get a better picture of a brown creeper as it creeps it’s way up the trunk of a white pine.
I hope you all have a wonderful day, stay safe and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
