Fly by

June 5, 2013

Linking up with NF Winged   and  Skywatch Friday

Can you believe another week is flying by? It's time for my favorite Skywatch Friday and some birds for NF Winged 


I have been hearing the baby herons and on this day I just barely managed to catch one of the adult herons flying over my yard back to the nest. You wouldn't believe the sounds coming from the heron nest, one of our neighbors thought the sounds were coming from some wild animals.


This moon shot was taken June 1 the last quarter with 43 % visable. I saw a pretty crescent moon this morning. I will try to get a crescent shot in the morning.


During last weekend's walk with hubby, I saw this pretty Scarlet Tanager. He was high up in the tree among the tulip poplar blooms.


On this morning driving to work , I saw somewhat of a sunrise, there is some pink behind the fog.The silhouettes of the trees look pretty. These trees  have grown so fast and so high, they are now blocking my view of the sunrise during my ride to work.  :(


Further along on my ride to work, I could see more of the sunrise and a pretty pink sky.



I am ending this post with another shot of the colorful Scarlet Tanager. I hope you enjoyed my birds and skies. 

Thanks for visiting my post and  blog and I always appreciate your comments.

Happy Skywatching  to everyone!

  1. We are supposed to have the scarlet tanagers here, but I have not seen one. Our neighbors regularly see some in their yard. You'd think I'd see such a bright bird.

    How neat to have baby herons right in the neighborhood.

  17. Your sunrise photos are amazingly beautiful, Eileen! Loved seeing the scarlet tanager and the tulip tree. I have never seen a scarlet tanager - how colorful! We have a tulip tree but it grows in a very shady area and it remains small and has not bloomed. Our neighbors have one that blooms, I guess I just have to enjoy theirs.

  21. I love trees of course, but I'll miss your morning sky shots! (However, maybe you can sleep in a few more minutes, with no need to stop for a photo op.)

    Wonderful scarlet tanager...red birds are always so special to me, because I never really saw any in the part of Oregon where we lived for so long.

  22. What a beatiful red bird - we don´t have them in Sweden. However I have a tulip poplar but I have never seen any flowers on it.
