Nature Walks – A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

It was such a beautiful day today.  All the snow from just a couple of days ago has already melted and the sun was shining brightly once again.  We took a really long walk back in our open space behind our house.  We took a slightly different path than usual, and walked a litter further too.  We think we walked 5+ miles today.  There were not as many critters out and about as usual, but we did see some.   I just love taking the camera out with us when we go walk-about.  You just never know what you’re going to see or “who” you’re going to meet.

Magpies are pretty prevalent. We seem them all over the place, all the time.

The ducks were swimming two by two, but no baby ducklings yet.

Our first double crested cormorant for the season.  You met him on Friday.

We met a new friend today too.  Meet our new friend, Mr. Bufflehead.

Stay safe and stay well.  ‘Til next time.

  1. Nice shot of the cormorant. I don’t know why magpies are so difficult to photography. I had plenty of opportunities on our 10 day vacation to Montana, Wyoming and Idaho, but zero of what I focused on came out. It was like a spell was cast on my camera when I pointed in their direction.
