One of the five birds I saw this week gave me a bit of a thrill. Once again, the week gave me little time or decent weather for a nature hike. However, I saw enough different birds during my week to satisfy me.
And hopefully, today, I’ll be able to get out and go on a nature walk to see a few more. If the weather holds. It’s another gray and gloomy Saturday. Hoping the sun arrives soon. The weather is, thankfully, warmer at least.
The Five Birds I Saw This Week:
ONE: A Tufted Titmouse
TWO: A Silly Sparrow
Three: A Brown Creeper
Four: An Early Halloween Treat on Monday, A Backyard Hawk. I think this is a Cooper’s Hawk.
Monday was both cold and windy. I spied this hawk land on a tree in my neighbor’s yard and so ran out on the deck with my camera and did my best to zoom in on him. Here’s a close-up of his body and tail-feathers. Let’s pretend I took the below photo on purpose.
Five: A Downy Woodpecker
No time for a nature walk on Thursday since I was called into work. However, I work close to a great little park where I like to go and decompress on my lunch break. Parked the car against a wooded area (the parking lot is for people who do have time to go and walk) on yet another gloomy day.
