Weekend Images

Gail and I spent some time walking around Miller Park and the Reynolda House grounds this weekend. We had heard through the Forsyth Birds email list that a Little Blue Heron had been spotted in Miller Park. We went on the hunt and found an even better one just when we were about to give up. It’s not a great picture as he was far away, the light was low, and he kept moving away from us.

The Yellow-crowned Night Heron:

Similarly, this Red Shouldered Hawk was really far away, but it’s cool to see them in the wild.

Turtles on a log:

A male and a female Eastern Towhee:

And a lovely female Bluebird:

Looking for birds is a great excuse to just be outdoors. I’m glad Gail and I share this kind of geeky interest. Now I’m tuning in more and more to the beautiful plant life in this part of the country. I’ll share some of that later.

  1. Critter watching is a great pastime for me too. I'm glad you and Gail have this interest in common. It's also a great way to get in a nice walk.

    Have a terrific day Ferd. Big hug. 🙂

    Anything to be active outdoors! I know how much you guys love it, too, especially on the water!

    Thank you! But you know, if I am geeky, I'm okay with it.

    Thanks! Your deep concern for animals is one of the things I admire about YOU!

  3. Geeky is good and especially geeky together is good.

    I like the heron shot the best because the bird appears to be hiding from you.

    You are becoming quite the photographer. I smell a new blog…

    Yes, I like the heron pic the best, too, because we were trying to be quiet to not scare it away, while dodging branches and following it down a small stream. Even though it was in a public park right in the middle of town, we felt like we were real nature photographers! We'll call it Local Geographic! LOL
