Some Birds on the Way to Lowes!!


The sun came out finally---for a few days anyways I had to make a trip to Lowes to get stuff for more projects.....but all this work is getting to me...so I stopped at a park to see what birds were hanging around...

Eastern Phoebe


This phoebe was busy catching flies just above the surface of the small stream that cuts through this park.. Next up was this portly American Robin!

this Red Bellied Woodpecker was really upside down..


and I didnt know Goldfinch loved to eat the seed in these sycamore  balls they were all over these trees...

they dangled,


napped...


snacked...


and contemplated the next move!


 jumping from one ball to the next!



On the way back home I stopped by the corn field...no corn this time of year but it looks pretty in its winter colors..


and then this afternoon we had a lovely sunset!! 



the best way to end a peaceful day!!


PEACE

    1. TRUE...I get bogged down and start to feel disconnected if I go too long without a trek into nature!

  4. So happy you stopped to see the birdies! Spring must be on the way! I've seen those seed balls on trees and now I know that they are Sycamores. Learned something new today, yay! Thank you.
