Carolina chickadee high up in the tree. I don’t see these often.
Not sure what this titmouse was looking at as he landed on the branch.
“Oh wait, get my good side.” (but what’s he’s really thinking is “Do you have any bird seed lady?”)
Cardinals are everywhere.
His girlfriend was down below him on the ground pecking at something.
The lake was quiet with only a few coots floating around.
“Trust me, I”m not going to steal your snack.” I said to the coot as he turned his head.
Signs of fall in February.
Still a few things blooming though.
And sprouting. This back and forth hot and cool weather has nature confused.
This has been a weird winter for everyone. Down here we are getting 80 degrees for a couple of days and then in the 50’s a couple of days. Back and forth. My sister, who lives in Birmingham (AL) was caught in that snow storm recently and spent one night sleeping on the floor of her office and one night in a hotel before she could get home. She had to leave her car at the bottom of the mountain and hike up. Two days later it was 65 degrees.
It was sunny and cool in early February when I headed out to Chesnut Park for a long walk. Nothing new at the park but it was a beautiful morning and quiet. Except for the usual joggers and dog walkers that stay on the street through the park, the boardwalks were empty. Saw a lot of deer on this trip. More on those later.
