My life is about living with nature – here you can live it with me!

Morning Hike

The sun woke me up this morning and I had decided that I needed to take a nice hike. While filling the feeders, I found a cool bird wing imprint in the snow. Then I decided to head down to France Brook which always brings me some excitement. Had the most fun crunching the ice puddles along the road!

Bird Wings Puddle Ice

Birds were acting funny and the Bluejays kept on making these strange clicking sounds. To my surprise there was an adult Bald Eagle near the Beaver Ponds. It was a stunning bird and took off before I could get a good picture. Suddenly the Common Ravens circled and started chasing the Eagle. It was wonderful thing to watch! Besides this excitement with the eagle and Raven; there was your typical birds moving around in the shrubs which I enjoyed watching.

Enjoyed finding a Song Sparrow in there!

After my hike, I visited my family and lost a bunch of money at the Casino!! Ugg, they opened a section in the new building and I had to check it out! It’s going to be a LONG time until I visit that place again!!

    Hope you enjoyed the hike, we all enjoyed hearing about it. I was wondering if you could help me out with a question. What do you suggest feeding birds in the wintertime?

  3. @Talkingtotrees – always love breaking up ice puddles! It is natures way of making art.
    @AmatureNaturalist – I use Oil Sunflower seeds from walmart!! I keep away from most other seeds. Due to many animals getting into my feeders, I stick with the squirrel proof feeder in keeping other animals out.

    I think you better stick with the birds & mice.
    The casino wants all your money.
    I have enjoyed looking at your pictures.
