I took these photos about a mile from our house in an area called Oxbow Natural Area. We are so lucky to live in such a gorgeous area. I was with two friends and only had my “short” lens so no bird photos.
We did see the following birds:
Blue Jays, Black-capped Chickadees, House Wrens, Northern Flickers, Great Blue Heron, Osprey (flying), Belted Kingfisher (fishing), Robins (with babies), Violet-green Swallow, Mallard (flying), Bullock’s Oriole, Hairy Woodpecker, Dusty Flycatcher.
Get out take a walk and enjoy nature!

Short, but fun! I hope it made you smile.
