I am sharing a mishmash of images.  On these cold winter days I enjoy walking on my treadmill in the warm house. I can watch the birds out the window as I walk. On one day I found a new bird for my Treadmill bird list, it was the Fox Sparrow.


The Fox Sparrow was a new bird for my treadmill window sightings. They are pretty sparrows, with lovely colors.


My list of treadmill birds below is growing, I am up to 25 now. I may have missed one or two. I have photos of most of them, just for my records and some I have already blogged about.


My Treadmill bird list

1. Northern Parula
2. Ovenbird
3. Wood Thrush
4. Mockingbird

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party. I am not sure how quickly I will be able to visit today I will be visiting everyone as soon as possible.

Feb 3 & 4th were sparrow days for me. Two new yard birds and one is a lifer.
Below are the Field Sparrow and my latest lifer the American Tree Sparrow.


It was a rainy foggy day and did not expected to see two new yards and one is a lifer. Above is the American Tree Sparrow a lifer and a great bird to show up in my yard.


The Field Sparrow arrived at the same time as my Tree Sparrow. They must have been traveling companions on this rainy day.



They both got busy with the buffet of seed I spread out on my deck railing.


The marking on a Tree Sparrow are the bi-colored bill, a dark spot on its chest, they have a rusty cap and eyeline.





I was happy to add these two b…

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!  



I am sharing various images from a daytrip hubby and I took to see the Eastern Neck NWR in Rock Hall, Maryland. We walked on the various trails such as the Tubby Cove Boardwalk, the Wildlife Trail, the Tidal Marsh Overlook Trail and the Bayview Butterfly Trail.


A view of the bay from the Bayview Butterfly trail. We were happy to see that the snow had melted on Maryland's eastern shore. The trails may have been a little muddy or wet in places but not too bad.


Loblolly Pines are a common tree seen in the wildlife refuges on Maryland Eastern Shore. They can grow up to 100 feet tall, the bark is thick and scaly. They a…

The Scarlet Tanagers are breeders in the woods next to my house. They seem to love the blooms on our Crepe Myrtle bush.
