Exploring Nature One Step At A Time

A Mother’s Day Hike Filled with Beautiful Birds

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My Husband knows my idea of a perfect Mother’s Day… well to be truthful for any day.  We went for a lovely evening hike and arrived just in time to watch birds gathering their dinner.  Although the light was rapidly fading it would have been hard to miss the red of a juvenile Summer Tanager.  It sang a glorious song in-between scooping up its feast of green Caterpillars.  We nearly missed a beautiful Blue Grosbeak at dusk.  Its deep blue coloring apparent as it landed in the last rays of the sun.

Special thanks to my beloved husband for joining me for this special hike.
Love to ALL!

  1. Ty for letting me tag along baby. These guys were/are so gorgeous. The tanager already “knew” us and showed no fear coming within feet so you could film and video. (Can’t wait to c the video). It was such a gorgeous day. A special hike it truly was. x0x0x
