Clouds, Blue Skies, Birds, Trees And Some Other Spring Stuff
Well we finally got some of my favorite Spring weather here today in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Sunshine, deep blue skies and scattered puffy cumulus clouds with warmer temperatures in the 60’s.. Some of the finest weather of the year, in my opinion anyway.
I took a walk near out to the railroad tracks near my house again hoping to see some of the many birds I saw on my last walk. I spotted this male cardinal at the beginning of my walk. They are year long residents here but still always nice to see them.
I walked past the ponds and wetlands but this time did not see any water fowl and very few song birds. I think the strong wind may have had something to do with it. I did see these bright yellow goldfinches getting a drink from the mussy waters in the wetlands.
I got to the tracks but didn’t have time to walk very far but it was just nice to be out here on such a glorious day. I really wish I could just walk the tracks for a few days, sleeping wherever I wind up at nightfall.
I was hoping to see some of the birds I did on my last hike out here, the scarlet tanager, common yellowthroats, or plovers but not a one. I was about to give up just as i was leaving the woods when I spied this little fellow in the brush, a hooded warbler I believe.
There is just so much to see outdoors this time of year that i hated to head home. But the forecast for the next few days looks good so hopeful I will get out a few more times after work. These days don’t last long so you got to take advantage of them. Here is a link to some more photographs from my hike this afternoon. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-2017/nggallery/photographs-2017/Railroad-hike-Greenridge-May-15-2017
