It was a very warm day; that may be why there were less birds to be seen than on previous visits. We did see these Sandhill Cranes who were quite approachable. They had no baby to protect since both this year's babies died. When they have young ones they can be quite dangerous.
Wood Ducks are very pretty... maybe I should say handsome since the male is much
more colourful than the female.
Lots of blooming bushes...
and Lupines growing by the paths.
I like old houses even more than bird watching. We saw these on the way.
Stopped to ask a fellow what kind of tree he had in the front yard but he didn't know. Could it be a Jacaranda? Does anyone know? I typed in tree with pale purple tubular flowers and that's what I got.
It really felt like Summer today. We get a few more of these days then some rain by the middle of the week. It's amazing how quickly pots dry out in the heat. I had to do some watering when we got home.
I hope you had a lovely Sunday and that the week ahead will be a pleasant one.
Thanks for visiting today.
