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.
