At the Feeders and in the Trees - Week 13

Photographing young birds at my feeders and in the trees has been a treat. 


A juvenile Northern Cardinal visited my deck recently. Take a look:




You can see some red in a few feathers and in the tail.



In addition to the juvenile cardinal, we watched a pair of robins feeding their young. 



A young American Goldfinch also visited. 



Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

Birds at Piney Bay - Camping with the Family

Over the Memorial Day weekend, we camped at Piney Campground on Kentucky Lake near Dover, TN. The water was so relaxing to watch. 



Shortly after we arrived, I started seeing a Red-headed Woodpecker in the trees and was able to get a few pics. This is my first one to photograph since living in Kentucky for 1.5 years so you know I was excited. 




Next my grandson saw a Great Blue Heron in a tree by the edge of the water. I hurried to get a shot and captured him in flight.



A Brown Thrasher was in the grass near the water.



Early one morning we saw Canadian Geese and their goslings in the water.



We had fun with our grandsons boating on Kentucky Lake.




My son-in-law had his kayak and the boys enjoyed time in it but stayed close to the water's edge. 


The weekend was great until a terrible storm hit. We did go home that evening between storms then returned the next morning. A few trees were down and lots of debris. We were thankful no one was hurt. 



Thanks for stopping by - Judy.
