Susquehanna River Trail


I have a list below of memes I am joining for this week, and to save time I am doing one post for all. They are all fun memes to participate in...I hope you can join in with the fun  and check out some of the participating posts. Special thanks to all the wonderful host and their memes, I hope you have some time to check them out.

Hello, I am again sharing another one of our walks. This time hubby and I were walking the trail that follows along the Susquehanna River.  The trail has great views of the river and is usually a great place to see the birds. The Bald Eagles are known to nest along this river and there is also a Great Blue Heronry.


Above first row is a Song Sparrow, unknown flycatcher, Tree Swallows. Middle row is a Double Crested Cormorant, Great Blue Heron, Gulls. Bottom row another Great Blue Heron, Osprey on the wire and a juvenile Bald Eagle.



A view of the Susquehanna River, way in the distance is the bridge that carries Highway I-95 across the river. For my NF Tree entry the river is lined with a hardwood forest.


A view below the Conowingo Dam, the hang out with a group of DC Cormorants and one Great Blue Heron.


Some scenes from along the Susquehanna River trail, lots of trees one tree with many carved initials, some wildflowers, the river and a Red-spotted Purple butterfly.


I thought this flower was delicate and pretty, a tiny flower with spider webs. I hope enjoyed this walk with me and my hubby. We enjoyed having you along. Thanks for visiting and for the nice comments. Have a happy new week ahead!

  7. Hello, Eileen! Visiting you, while I have net over here...
    Great shots, as usual!
    Lovely views along the river... and I loved the wildflowers!
    I'm terrible sorry, for not visiting you here, for quite a while, but I have not much net here, where I have been, in these last weeks. And some blogs are not easy to see, in such conditions...
    But in a couple of weeks I'll be able to visit you, much more often again...
    Have a great week, Eileen!
    A big kiss to you...
    Ana

  28. The cormorants don't seem to mind the lone heron hanging out with them - they all seem quite peaceable. Would be nice if people were the same way!

  43. What a beautiful walk! Your photos and collages are stunning. You are an inspiration Eileen, you are truly living life to it's fullest, and not only that, you take time out to stop to admire the little birds and smell the roses (or whatever flowers you come across!) along the way. And! Wait there's more.... you always have time to stop by at all of our blogs to say hello! Something I sadly have not done as much of as I would like, thank you for being such a generous part of my blogging life!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Look at all those birds! The Susquehanna River trail looks to be a birder's paradise, Eileen!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hello Eileen, i am back in blogging, haha. Seeing a lot of birds in one spot i guess is real awesome, i haven't seen a spot like that in my country. I saw once in Auckland but they are seagulls with people on the beach, not the real wild ones. I also love that lonesome flowering plant.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wonderful nature photos! Birds,flowers, water!

    ReplyDelete
  54. oh gosh I sure would like to go there myself, now that it's Spring here i"m hoping I can start getting out and about more.

  57. Clearly a super place to see lots of nature's beauty and birdlife! I loved that you mentioned the I-95 bridge as it brings back fond memories of our vacation time in MD and PA! I'll know for next time to stop and walk the trails! Thanks Eileen!
