Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016

I am linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences
I hope you can join in on the fun and share your fence scenes and pretty skies.

Wishing everyone a very Happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!



It is hard to believe it has been a year since I retired Dec 31st 2014. During this
past year we went on many day trips and overnight trips. We took a trip to Florida and Washington State. We visited many local Maryland parks, some new and some all time favorite parks. I found some new life birds to add to my list, which is at 455 birds.

I guess you could say we are having the times of our lives doing what we want when we want. Since I have so many photos to share I posted smaller sizes you can click on the image for larger viewing.

It was a foggy morning during our visit to the Piney Run Park in Eldersburg, Md. We walked along the trail near the lake shore in both directions. We saw the Tundra Swans, various ducks and a huge flock of Canada Geese flew in while we were there.

Just a short post for today, it's Christmas Eve..A pretty sky and a cute Carolina Wren perched on my fence and one of my moon photos.


The sky seen from our deck on Dec 7th. The vultures fly back to our woods near the sunset. They roost in the trees at night and move on to another spot early in the morning.


Back at home on our fence I found this noisy Carolina Wren.


My moon shot taken on Dec 15th. I hope you enjoyed my post.

This year I am going with less is more when it comes to decorating. I did not decorate much around the house but I did put up the Christmas tree.

During our good weather times, hubby and I try to take a walk or go somewhere to enjoy the outdoors, birds and nice weather. On this day we went back to the North Point State Park in Baltimore County, Maryland. It was a great spot in the summer to see the Little Blue Herons and on this day we saw the Red-headed woodpeckers.




A mosaic of some of the birds we saw at the park top row: Red-headed Woodpecker, American Goldfinch, Brown Creeper. Second Row: Northern Flicker, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Great Blue Heron. Last row: another Red-headed Woodpecker, Mourning Doves, American Robin.
