It rained this week! I’m not complaining we need it, so when He-Man and I went for a hike on Saturday we went late morning to let it dry out a bit, and get warmer. We kept to the paved streets in the nearby hills b/c I did not want to trod uphill and down in the mud on the trails. We walked just over 2 miles and gained about 600ft in elevation. It felt like a workout.
FWIW: If I’m hiking or stretching my legs with a hike I’d rather go uphill for a bigger pay off verses a longer, flat walk. Since it was late morning there wasn’t any wildlife; the birds, deer, coyotes, and wild turkey were all napping I guess. Not a bad place to be on a late Saturday morning though. 🙂
Sunday it rained all day. Like me all the wildlife was hunkered down somewhere cozy, warm, and dry.
So, it’s to my archives we go.
Here are a few wild ones that visit my backyard bushes and feeders taken last year.
hum… something Squirrely (sp?) is going on here…
Yep! This one found the one feeder he/she can get in to!
Then there’s the fence sitters.
The top bird is a Mourning Dove…which I’m thinking was born in the hanging basket on my patio, or their Mother. The bottom bird is a California Towhee. I can’t tell if it’s the male of female.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful week and staying warm!
