Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms!!   😊

I am seeing and hearing about the spring birds and migrants moving around I try to get out to do some birding at our local parks and my favorite parks.  On this day, hubby and I took a loop walk around Hashawha Nature Center. These are some photos from our walk. 

1. Below are the Brown Thrasher, Eastern Bluebird, Chipping Sparrows, Northern Cardinal and a Song Sparrow. 



2. At the raptor center, they have a male and female Barred Owl, Bald Eagle, Red-tailed Hawks and a Great Horned Owl.




3. As the day warmed up, we saw lots of turtles. They could be the Eastern Painted Turtle. The Red-eared Sliders are being seen in Maryland after people have released unwanted pets into the wild.




4. Various scenes from our walk, the pond and Hashawha Lake.




5. Hellebore, Bluebells, some unknown wildflowers and the Bloodroot. 



6.  The male Eastern Bluebird, I wish the twig was not in front of his face.  They are a common bird seen at the park, there are a lot of bird houses set up for the bluebirds to use.  



7. These Painted Turtles were seen sunning along the lake shore.

Saturday's Critters # 385

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!

Hello and happy Saturday!  😊

Happy May, wishing everyone a happy new month.   

 If you love all God's creatures like I do and also like to blog about them and take critter photos this is where you can share your critter post.

I am sharing some of my back yard birds and critters. A mish-mash of birds from our local fire road walks to the lake. 

1.  A cute back yard bunny, I hope it is not eating our plants.  I've been seeing two bunnies in the yard, maybe a couple that will have babies soon. 



2.  
Seen on 4-14-21 are various back yard birds,  I watch these birds from our window, they were on our deck and at the feeders. I am still seeing a mix of winter birds along with the new arrivals of spring and summer birds.

Top row: Dark-eyed Junco, American Goldfinch and a Chipping Sparrow

Middle row: Ruby-throated Hummingbird and the female Purple Finches.

Bottom Row: Red-breasted Nuthatch, Red-bellied Woodpecker and a White-throated Sparrow.   




3.  On 4-14-21   I am not sure if this is any early date for the Ruby-throated Hummingbird. It seems early to me.  Either way I am happy to see them again in my yard and I had the feeder ready for them.



4.   On 4-14-21 the male American Goldfinch is showing off his pretty summer colors.  



5. On 4-15-21 I was surprised to see so many Double-crested Cormorants at our local lake. A group of Cormorants can be called a "flight" or "swim" or a "gulp". On the far top right photo you can see their double crest showing. You can often see the Cormorants with their wings spread open sunning themselves. Hubby and I saw groups of them in the lake and perched in trees along the lake shore. 





6. 4-15-21, I found a few small birds moving around in the bushes along the shore. This Palm Warbler came out in the open for a few photos.  




7. This Palm Warbler has a tick under it's eye.  



8. On 4-17-21 are more of my yard birds at the feeders and deck.

Top row : male Pine Warbler

Middle Row: Red-bellied Woodpecker, Mourning Dove and a Tufted Titmouse

Bottom row: male Downy Woodpecker. 



9. I found this cute solar chime decoration for our deck, the hummingbirds light up and change colors. It looks really pretty at night.
