Cloudy, Wet And Cold, But It's Still Spring At The PPL Wetlands.
<![CDATA[[huge_it_share][huge_it_share]The cool weather continued today here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. It was cloudy, with a few showers and temperatures well below normal, remaining in the low 50's. I knew however, that despite the cool weather, nature would not shalt it's annual spectacular show. So I headed down to the PPL Wetlands to see what was new.<a href="https://www.keepyoureyespeeled.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/PPL-Wetlands-1.jpg"><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-77957" src="https://www.keepyoureyespeeled.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/PPL-Wetlands-1-300x200.jpg" alt="PPL Wetlands -1" width="300" height="200"></a>
The air was also filled with the sounds of many song birds that continue to return to the area. I saw so many species but it was hard to get good photographs because of the clouds and occasional rain. There were many yellow warblers singing in the treetops,
I did get a photograph of a female cardinal. It is the male that is usually seen perched high on a tree top and singing loudly to attract a female. Here is a link to some more photographs of some of the birds I saw today. https://www.keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-2017/nggallery/photographs-2017/PPL-Wetlands-birds-May-6-2017-
There is just so much to see outdoors this time of year. I could have spent the entire day in the wetlands looking at the flora and fauna. but, just as I neared my car the rains began to fall so I called it a day. But I am already looking forward to my hike tomorrow. Here is a link to some more photographs from my hike today. https://www.keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-2017/nggallery/photographs-2017/PPL-Wetlands-may-6-2017-
