Happy Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday!


These are some images from the North Point State Park in Baltimore County, it is the spot where I saw my Snow Buntings that I previously posted about. Hubby and I enjoyed a brisk walk in the park after seeing the Snowy Buntings. The park is located on the Chesapeake Bay, the views are pretty.

A view of the Chesapeake Bay.



Below me and my shadow, I was happy and thankful to find the Snow Buntings so easily right at the end of this brick pier.


There were plenty of Song Sparrows sighted near the Snow Buntings. 


The lighting was not the best for iding ducks out in the bay, I am guessing these are Scaup.


Some of the Snow Buntings


Another look at the Chesapeake Bay, looking very smooth.


The North Point State Park has two parts, the piers by the bay and this Black Marsh Trail. 


A few Mallards were seen in the marsh area off the trail. 



The Eastern Towhee was seen in a tree along side the trail. I usually hear these birds singing before I can see them.  



A view of the marsh land. 




I was thankful to see the Snow Buntings during my visit to the park. Bird watching is one of my simple pleasures. 
A thankful heart is a happy heart. 
am thankful for all your visits and comments.

  14. Snow buntings never come into town here. They stay out in the weedy fields in flocks of hundreds.
