Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

On April 8th, hubby and I met up with my friend for dinner in York Pennsylvania. Since we were nearby we decided to check out the Great Egret rookery and the Black Crowned Night Herons nesting in York Pa. York Pa is only a 30 minute drive from home.

Great Egret nesting tree.











There are 4 Black Crowned Night Herons in the photo below, the 4th one is kind of hidden.


Great Egret in a pretty sky.





A view of the Kiwanis Lake in York Pa, the pine trees in the middle left of the photo are where the egrets and herons are nesting.






I am thankful to be able to see the birds above at their nest.
I am thankful for good friends.

Some more of my yard birds, some winter birds still here as of 4/16/18 and first of the season Eastern Phoebe have arrived.

I am still seeing a lot of White-throated Sparrows around the yard, they have a pretty song. 


Below are two photos of the Eastern Phoebe.





I've been seeing two bunnies in the yard, maybe some baby bunnies will arrive soon.

Happy Thankful Thursday!


Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you all have a great day!

Recently hubby and I went on an overnight trip to Shenandoah National Park. We stayed at the Skyland Resort in a nice room with a balcony. 

This is a view from one of the overlooks on the Skyline Drive. We started the drive at Front Royal and drove down the Skyline Drive to Skyland, Big Meadows and a little past Big Meadows. 



We walked on the Big Meadows, a little windy but it was a warmer wind.


We spent the night at the Skyland lodge and hotel. Our room was on the second floor and we had a great view of the valley from our balcony. 


There were Robins all over the place. 





 We saw lots of deer later in the evening and in the early morning 


We did see a lot of wild turkeys along the drive and in the woods. 


We took a walk the first day on the Limberlost Trail. Along the trail we heard and saw some Blue-headed Vireo's, Hermit Thrush and Juncos. 






Till this trip we missed seeing the sunset/sunrises at Shenandoah NP. We went on many day trips and left way before sunset to drive home. Years ago we went on many camping trips to Shenandoah NP, my days of camping and sleeping on the ground are long gone.







I am thankful to see the wildlife, like the deer and wild turkeys.
I am thankful for the beautiful sunsets, a simple pleasure I enjoy.
I am thankful for all your visits and comments.
