Exploring Nature One Step At A Time

Kicking the Kids Out of the Nest

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yesterday I stepped out for a quick (2  1/2 hours) afternoon hike and witnessed a Mom kicking the kids out of the nest.  For about 20 minutes she chased, barked and nipped at her kits to keep them in the Trees on the opposite side of the trail.  Tough love from a Squirrel mom.

Further along the trail a tiny Yellow Rumped Warbler was singing a sweet song as Male Cardinal was photo bombed by a White-Throated Sparrow. Vibrant orange Leaves glowed in the winter Forest lightng my way home.  It was a perfect winter hike!

Love to ALL!
