Our World, My World


Hello and Happy Monday,

Views of my world and my neighborhood, one of our recent walks on the nearby fire road. We start off in the same direction as the last two walks but cut off onto a new to me fire road heading toward a different section of the lake. 

Aug 21st , we started out our 3.2 round trip mile hike on the Shamberger Peninsula trail. Taking the cut off of the main trail to another fire road that came to a dead end.  We could see the lake through the trees but we were not very close to the lake. There was a steep hill down to lake, I was not up to bushwhacking my way down to the water. 



Various views of our local fire roads and walk on Aug 21st. 




I am sure these are Cedar Waxwings, I see yellow on the bottom of their tails. 



We pass by where I recently saw my Prairie Warblers, Cedar Waxwings and the Yellow-billed Cuckoo. The Cedar Waxwing were still there, hanging out high in tree.  All I could see was their bottoms. the top two photos are the Cedar Waxwings and the bottom photo is an unknown Flycatcher? 



We saw 3-5 of these birds hanging out together high in the trees. I see a little on it's chest and two wing bars? 



This tree has some nice sized nuts, I am not sure what kind of tree it is?  Maybe pecan nut? 



There is a section of bamboo plants in a clearing area, also where the nut tree and my unknown flycatcher were  seen. 







The fire road is already starting to be covered with fallen leaves. We watched two deer running away from us, no photo. The Bow Hunting season usually starts around Sept 15. We will have to find another place for our walks. 







Please check out and visit the following memes and links. I hope to see you there.

  1. Hello Eileen,
    I'm surpriset to see all the fallen leaves. Is it caused by drought?
    Here have no leaves fallen yet. The bamboo trees looks nice.
    Happy Monday!

  5. Hello Eileen,
    Beautiful photos of your walk to the lake.
    I think the bamboo is really beautiful and it's so high, you don't see it here at all.
    The leaves fall early on.
    Best regards, Irma

  13. What a pretty stand of bamboo. I don't think that's a pecan but not sure what it is! I like a mystery too! We always come home with something to ID! Enjoy your day!

  19. I would not want to be walking in that beautiful place during bow season for sure... I like bow and arrow but only at targets. years ago I was very good at it. about 55 years i think. i love that first view of the fire road, a place i would like to wander.

  20. bamboo grows like weeds...amazing we haven't made more use of this beast

  21. It’s such a good place to walk, I’m sorry about hunting season starting...that is true about the trails out by the lakes where we used to live here in Oregon, I always felt sad when I saw deer just before it opened, and wished them luck.

  23. Such pretty places to walk, Eileen. You're making me wish to move from this neighborhood; just not really anywhere to walk. :(

    I don't think that's a pecan tree; my cousin has several and they don't look like that. But, I could be wrong.

    Have a blessed day.
    xoxo

  24. Once again there are some wonderful photographs for us to enjoy, thank you.
    Isn't the bamboo wood amazing!

    Yes, Autumn is just around the corner, but I don't mind, it's one of my favourite seasons.

    Enjoy your week.

    All the best Jan

  26. I’ve only ever seen one cedar waxwing. Such pretty birds!

  27. It is hard to id a bird from the bottom! ;-) Too bad about the hunting starting just as the leaves will be reaching a lot of color!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I enjoy your beautiful walks and photos. The bamboo is amazing, I never have seen it up close.

  29. Hello Eileen
    these are beautiful photos in your blog again. The birds are always beautiful to see but the bamboo forest is also very special to see: -_
    I haven't posted in a month but I hope to change that again next Saturday and to link to you too ;-)
    Very nice new week.
    Greetings, Helma

  32. Beautiful captures Eileen. Wonderful views during your walk.

  33. Fun that you saw and recognized the Cedar Waxwings. I finally recognized an American Redstart this week. Working on my skills.

  34. A nice place to go walking. Like the shot of the bamboo.

  35. the bamboo was wonderful to see, as your birds always are. What a pleasure to walk with you. Stay safe during hunting season safe at home that is!

  36. told you I'd be back! thanks for linking up at CountryScapes...It must be so lovely walking there but a shame you can't do so during the Autumn months while bow season is on. I just love the bamboo photo...I guess it is not a native plant in that area...is it problematic I wonder?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm always surprised when I see bamboo this far north. I didn't realize it was a "northern" plant.

    I am thinking we are in for an early fall this year.

  38. Hi Eileen, Very beautiful images of your world and your neighborhood. I like places with a lot of nature.

  39. That was a beautiful walk you took, Eileen. I've never seen pecans on a tree before. It's starting to feel autumny here in California, too. Cheers!

  40. Today I came to know what is fire road. Beautiful birds and bamboo trees from your hike. Have a wonderful day!

  41. Eileen - fascinating to see that bamboo in the midst of an otherwise "normal" forest. I am not ready for autumn, so those fallen leaves are a bit of a shock! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I saw a few leaves changing color this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Beautiful and inviting photos from your walk and trails! and what a natural surrouding to live by and it should be interesting walking on cranking dry leaves. Enjoy your furture trails as well

    Cheers

  47. Such soothing sights from your walk. Loved seeing the Bamboo. It's been a while since I saw some. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. you always have such amazing sightings on your walks, the birds bottoms are funny!! you have to be good at identifying these birds as they are up so high!! my mom's neighbor has bamboo growing and it comes over on her property, she is always complaining about it!!!

    the walking path is quite beautiful, i am envious that you get to walk so often!!!

  49. Lovely photos of such a pretty area you live in.

  52. I just now remembered I need to come back here...I had looked on my phone Monday or Tuesday and wanted to wait till on the computer to see better. I am glad others didn't think that was a pecan tree....I didn't think it was either but have no idea what it is. Pecan trees have leaves that are opposite of each other...like a walnut tree...look Here. If you get the chance, I hope you photograph it as the season goes on...I am really curious...

    ReplyDelete
  53. The bamboo is not native, is it?

    ReplyDelete
  54. It's so much fun to discover new places to walk where you hope they will be lovely critters to shoot! Great finds and awesome scenery!
