It was a nice, sunny day today, at Blackwater River State Park, with temperatures hovering around 55 degrees. We spent time outside so things were good!  A lot of the trails are covered with water due to heavy rains and river runoff, so we are limited to where we can hike. We saw another Fox Squirrel today, this one black with a white face, but he was too fast for me to get a photo.

This one and a half hour loop trail is covered with river water, in places, making it impossible to hike.

Tonight’s low will be 27 degrees; a little too “cool” for me! Where are our mild temperatures?

    1. Hi Eileen. Glad I found your blog today. I need to research some more birding blogs/bloggers. I was stopping by Kathie’s Birds and I need to drop in on her site more often.

      Again, I would appreciate some birding blogger names if you think of any! I think only another birder appreciates so many bird photos 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I will have to remember to participate in your Friday posts! Thanks!

    1. Barb, I hope you and family had a wonderful weekend! Thank you for your comment; I am glad and honored that you continue to visit and comment on my blog.
