I hope everyone is hanging in there and staying safe. I know some states are re-opening now, Maryland since March 30th is continuing the stay at home unless you are essential. We can go out for a walk for fresh air and to the store wearing a mask.
Sunday April 19th, we took a walk in our neighborhood. We can not walk on the trails/fire roads due to the closing and no-trespassing signs. So we had to take our walk on the road. We walked to the bridge, where it goes across the reservoir. During our 30 years living here, it was the first time they closed the fire roads/ trails to the public. No fishing boats on the lake, no hiking, no horseback riding, just no to everything.
There are no sidewalks so a few times we had to go back and forth across the street whenever we heard a car or truck coming.
We have to watch out while walking some trucks have these huge mirrors sticking way out. We managed safely to walk down to the bridge and back home.
The trees are budding, on this day it still looks like winter most trees were still bare. The forest is considered the watershed area around the reservoir.

We walked just a little on the bridge. The only people we saw beside drivers in cars and trucks, were some bike riders and joggers.
I am guessing the bird below is a Northern Rough-winged Swallow. I watched maybe 5-6 of these Swallows flying low over the lake.
Besides the Swallows that hang out around the bridge we could see a few Canada Geese on the lake.
In the forest around the lake there are the native White Dogwood trees.
A lone flower we saw off the road, not sure of the id.
Beside birding in my yard, a walk on the road or a drive to the bike trail we only go out to the food stores. We live in a rural area near the lake, it is a 15 minute drive to the food store. This is my world.
I pray everyone is healthy and remains safe. Take care.
