Baker Park, Frederick Maryland

happy Monday,

I am doing an extra post this week, I am getting behind sharing some photos and parks we have visited during the end of April.  On this day hubby and I took a walk in Baker Park in Frederick Maryland.

April 25th, 2018
At this park there is a Night Heron rookery, both the Black-crowned Night Herons and the Yellow-crowned Night Herons. We could only see a couple of BC Night Herons, it was a chilly and windy day, the birds were hunkered down because of the weather.


The path around the Baker Park. I love the weeping willow trees.


Canada Geese with goslings.



Mallard Ducks


Black-crowned Night Heron.. hide and seek

Lovely photos - I particularly like the photo of the heron all camoflaged in the branches

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Great walk -- the first time I ever saw night herons was at a rookery in Eureka California (yellow-crowned) .... I was so excited. We went back there a few years later and it was gone ... someone said blown away in a windstorm. I was so sad. Love those birds (both blue- and yellow-crowned).

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Beautiful shots. I love weeping willows :)

Just came back from a local park with a grandson and was sad to see no geese there. I guess we missed them....early spring was either cold, wet, snowing or what-have-you :(

Joyful said...

Lovely photos all but I especially like the Black Crowned Night Heron. Well done to get its photo.

I've always loved weeping willows. And I especially like the last photo of the trees in bloom with the lovely white gazebo.

That is a lovely productive walk! I love the cuteness of the Heron on the pine tree, one being surprised and the other sleeping! We have night herons here too.
