I have been posting a lot on our local fire road walks, our lake and of course the birds. So between house chores, taking walks, reading and blogging my days go by quickly. I can not complain, hubby and I are doing well, happy and virus-free.
On July 6th, I was able to see the Buck Moon aligned in a triangle with Saturn and Jupiter.
One day hubby and I took our walk at a park in the near by town of Hampstead. This park is called Leister Park, I have blogged previously about our walks at this park. There is a nice paved walkway mostly in the clearing and a bit of the path goes through a wooded area. A pretty blue sky day, but it was hot and humid to be walking especially in the sunny areas.
Below are the: Northern Mockingbird, Flycatcher, guessing maybe Acadian Flycatcher. Bottom row are the Gray Catbird, American Robin and a Chipping Sparrow.
The park has a spot conserved, we saw a lot milkweed and other native plants. The Monarchs should be happy here.
I am thankful for the conservation land and the park land. We need areas conserved as open space, fields for the wildlife, birds and native plants.
"Conservation is humanity caring for the future." Nancy Newhall
We a few Northern Mockingbirds, most were sitting high in the tree tops.
"The wildlife and it's habitat can not speak, so we must and we will." Theodore Roosevelt
Heading to some shady area and the wooded part of the path. This spot was good for watching the Swallows flying low over the field catching bugs.
Someone or something was watching us, I could feel it.
We were not the only ones enjoying the shade, this park backs up to a cow farm..
There were cows standing up and laying down in the forest.
A long and winding path, it was nice to be in the shade. I heard some birds calling maybe a Scarlet Tanager and a few Catbirds.
People were going around the loop so fast, they were passing us a second time. Benches in the sunshine, a little too hot for me to sit in the sun.
We were kind of just strolling, watching the birds, blooms and butterflies.
"Let your dreams blossom." A big group of these yellow flowers, they looked pretty. I am thankful for the wildflowers and my early morning walks.
"An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day." Henry David Thoreau
