Tree Swallows were back, but there are not an abundance of trees still standing in the swamp for nesting spots. I played around with the color on this one because the sun was too bright to capture his iridescent blue.
This Red Squirrel jumped onto the stonewall in front of me nearly causing me to fall off the upended tree I was standing on.
Not a very riveting post just a dry report from the swamp. My sister and I are trying to get hiking again. We've taken a few years off due to hip pain then replacements and then a correction for her and grandbabies for me. On a short hike last week we spotted Golden Crowned Kinglets! A first for both of us. They are so very small but noisy! We heard them first and stopped to look, thinking they were Cedar Waxwings. What a surprise when two spiraled down to the forest floor almost at our feet. No camera that day, only binoculars.
