Sunday Morning Walk

Usually we walk to the park near our house and walk by the lake. Today we drove to a park a short drive away to walk there instead. The sun was shining and it was early enough so we met very few people.


This has the unlovely name of Fish Trap Park.  I'm not sure if this is considered a creek or another small lake.

This stump had some kind of fungus growing along the side. Anyone know what kind it might be?



We would have missed this Bush Tit nest if we hadn't noticed the Bush Tits working on it. They keep up their twittering little songs as they create their  strange hanging nest.


We enjoyed our walk and the rest of this rare sunny day. I'm hoping we'll have a few more in the week to come.

Thanks for visiting today,  Always love to read your comments.

  4. Wonderful photos, from your walk.

    Mmmmmmmm... Fish Trap Park... Mmmmmmm... Yes, they could come up with a new name, me-thinks. -grin- But then again, it is probably an old name. So suppose, no matter if it isn't a "pretty" name, I suppose its best to maintain it.

    Certainly is a lovely place to walk.

    Have never seen a nest like that. Very interesting.

    Happy Spring,

  6. We went for a walk in a different park Sunday morning as well. Aren't bush tit nests amazing little masterpieces. Such tiny birds making such a beautiful woven pouch.

  8. Hello Granny...I am just doing a bit of visiting with my blog friends this morning before my day begins in earnest. The area where you walked on Sunday morning looks like a very nice place to walk. I loved seeing the nest! Thank you for sharing the picture with us.

  9. That is a pretty place to walk, and what an unusual bird's nest, and so hard to spot. Doesn't it feel good to have a sunny day after so much rain. Hope you get many more sunny days.

  10. I enjoy seeing the places where my blog friends walk. Despite the name, Fish Trap Park looks like a lovely place for a stroll. The hanging bird's nest is so interesting. I've never seen one like that.

  11. It looks like you had a good walk with lots of interesting things to look at. It will be nice when our northern woods leaf out!

  12. Meredith and I have done much of our run training through there. In fact we did part of our run there this morning, before I met you at the thrift store. :-)

  13. Thank you for sharing your pic of the nest - how intriguing. We don't have bush tits here so I am not familiar with their nesting habits! I so appreciate reading about something that makes me want to learn more so I thank you for adding a "google" moment to my day.
