Hello and Happy Thursday,
I have mentioned many times how I am thankful for the small things, like skywatching, finding birds and for the pretty Autumn colors.
Oct 19th, hubby and I took a walk not far from our house. It is near the top of our lake, known as the Prettyboy Reservoir. When the lake is lower, I call this area the mud flats. I can usually find some sandpipers, ducks and Canada Geese. On this day we saw and heard the Belted Kingfisher and a few Red-bellied Woodpeckers.
The Belted Kingfisher made it's fussy rattle noise and flew off to another branch.
It was a pretty sky day, contrail and wispy clouds.
After the walk, we drove the longer way home around the reservoir and surrounding watershed. We stopped at one bridge to look at the colors, hubby found a Great Blue Heron flying toward us. The Heron was too fast for me and my camera.
Enjoy the colorfest, winter will come soon.
There were some pretty colorful trees on the lake shore, this is the view from the bridge above.
The Red-bellied Woodpecker was heard and seen in a few areas that day.
I am thankful for the small things in life.
I am thankful for clear blue skies and nice weather days.
I am thankful for all your visits and comments.
