More from the weekend

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences  and NF Winged

For my Skywatch Friday and Good Fence post I am sharing these shots left from last weekend's visit to the nature center, mostly shots from our ride home and a stop for some corn at the local stand..

It was a white puffy cloud day, no humidity and a gorgeous day for our walk..Hubby and I enjoy our weekend walks, we get plenty of exercise and I get to do some birding..



More pretty skies, this is a scene from our ride home and it is also a scene I pass every day going to and coming home from work.. On the very bottom of this photo is a stone wall, I hope this counts as a fence shot too.




On the way home from work I pass this dead bare tree every day too for years now. I am amazed it is still standing..I think it is a neat tree, I am always checking it out expecting a bird to be sitting at the top..I think it makes a great fence shot for Tex's Good Fence meme. 



During our walk I watched two Eastern Kingbirds battling it out in tree with what I believe is an immature Baltimore Oriole.. The Kingbirds left, so I think that means the Oriole on the left won..


I believe this is an immature Baltimore Oriole or maybe a female?

 The Eastern Kingbird.  The bird on the right was feeding the one on the left, pretty sure it was a juvie.


The Eastern Kingbird, has a black head and white throat and long wings. You can not see it in this photo but the tip of its tail feathers are white..



I hope you enjoyed my post and photos

  58. Hi Eileen, I have a spot with a trio of old dead Pines that are similar to that tree in your photo here today. That place here used to have a colony of Red-headed Woodpeckers. Have not seen any Red-headed Woodpeckers at all this season here at that spot and only heard one early this past Spring in my neighborhood. Oh! Have a super good weekend!
