I have been blogging for about 3 months now. Started a blog for the New Year 2014! It's almost April Fools! That was always such a fun day as a child.

Ground Hog's Day - Will he or Will He Not?
Wonder if the Ground Hog will even bother to come out? If he does, he will surely see his shadow and run back in for 6 more weeks of bad weather@ This little mystery hole was determined by WU folks to be that of a groundhog. So guess I have my own little Punxsutawney Phil!
I would hope for this winter extreme cold to calm down to mild 40 to 50 midday temps. Hope he does not see his shadow.
Today was a mild 50 to 60 degree day - balmy and is a mild 46 at almost midnight. It was a great day to go on the Riverwalk.
A beautiful day for a walk 50 to 60 degrees midday to afternoon.
Had several different ops with this pair of wood ducks, today on the Riverwalk. It was like they followed me down the river - or perhaps I followed them. At any rate, I got them in several different settings.
I have more to share for this blog entry but it is late. I will come back and add to it later. Thanks for dropping by! Happy Birding in Winter and will be watching out for that Punxsutawney Phil!
Happy Sunday! It's Ground Hog Day and they say he saw its shadow. I did not see mine come out as yet if indeed it is a ground hog. If I were him, I don't think I would have even bothered. However we had mild temps for Friday, Saturday, and now Sunday - So three days of mild weather. Actually, the forecast for the week looks fairly good with a promise of rain showers and clouds but mild temps. Weather like that makes you get gardening fever. Have a great day! Shirley
One more photo of the little wood duck from my Saturday afternoon walk.
I often speak of the cardinal tree and some of you wonder what in the world I am talking about. I posted a photo of it last year after discovering it near the edge of the woods on a deadend street that I pass by on my daily walk. I had never seen that many cardinals together. I was amazed! It is not a beautiful tree in winter - is quite scraggly and hard to even take a photo of the tree with all of the cardinals in it to do it justice. I posted the photo of the tree just to share how it really was true what I was saying as 20 or more cardinals in a tree sounds like a stretch of the imagination. Here is the photo:
