Happy Thankful Thursday!

 Happy Thursday,

Simple pleasures make me happy and thankful. Things like a pretty sky, the wildflowers and of course the birds.   Below are images from our walk on the Susquehanna River trail. 



 A view of the sky, me and my shadow at the walking bridge and fishing area. 


I just missed an Osprey flying up the river.




 Early May is a great time to see the Warblers, we had a great sighting of the Black and White Warbler.



 The Black & White Warbler  can climb around the trees like the Nuthatches and Brown Creepers.






Other birds seen were the Red-bellied Woodpecker, Northern Cardinal and lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers. 



From the trail below, lots of bird sounds were heard and we good see movement of various warblers in the tree tops.




 We found some Bluebells and other wildflowers along the Susquehanna River trail. 






A view looking towards the I-95 bridge over the Susquehanna River..



I am always thankful to be able to take a walk outdoors! I think of all the people who have been in lock down for a few months not being able to go outside at all because of a health risk.

Keeping well is a priority, stay safe!

I am always thankful for your visits and the comments.



Live simple and be happy!  😊 Spread joy & happiness!


Thank you Michelle for hosting Thankful Thursday
Thank you to Yogi the host of   Skywatch Friday

  20. I walk on the Susquehanna River Trail too, but north of you in Pennsylvania. I am not a very good nature photographer but we saw bay breasted warblers, chestnut sided warblers, a yellow-bellied sapsucker, and lots of tanagers and orioles when we walked on the trail. Love this time of year!
