Marshy Point Watery Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday

That's My World post now follows this Watery Wednesday post.




Marshy Point is a waterfront nature center on the bay. A few weeks ago hubby and I went for a walk on the trails. It was a drizzly day so my photos are not the best. I was hoping to see some different ducks in the water closeby. As far as seeing ducks, I think I went too early in the season. I did see some Canada Geese, Mallard ducks and a couple of Mute Swans. One Grebe disappeared by taking a dive and then I couldn't find it again. Oh well next time.










I did see some interesting fungi, to me it is actually pretty. I found it growing on the logs that were along the edge of the trail. Anyone know the name please let me know. It think it was really cool looking with pretty colors.

  3. I find birds very uncooperative. I saw a spotted towhee this morning but he hid before I could raise my camera.

  4. It's a kind of bracket fungus. I think it might be Trametes versicolor, otherwise known as Turkey Tail.
    Shame about missing the ducks. :(

  10. Eileen, your blog has full of information, cause I am no birder. But I love to photograph them when given a chance. I need first a better lens and patience. Hehehe!
    Those fungi are well captured!

  11. I second the thought that the fungus might be turkey tail or something similar. I, too, have been noticing fungi lately, especially when the birds aren't cooperating!

  49. Hello Eileen,

    Thank you for visiting me at Ms. Bake-it! I love your nature shots. Great mosaics. I especially love your header with all the birds. I too like fungi and think it is very interesting and usually take pictures of it when I come across it in my walks.

    Thank you for sharing with us today.

  50. Hi Eileen,
    I noticed the fungi in the first shot it was in, from a wider view. It does have a beauty of its own. I enjoyed your other photos, too.

    Nell, from Secrets of a Seedscatter just did a post where she talked about lichens, I think. I am not educated about those things, but I'm thinking maybe lichens are a kind of fungus? Well, you might be interested in checking out her post. I think the name of the post was, "British Soldiers" or something like that.

    Thanks for visiting my SkyWatch post.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
