All in All, a good day at the Nature Center.
There have been some Pelicans hanging out at Fountain Creek Nature Center. I went down there at lunch today. I guess I can probably blame “finding nemo”, whenever I do a pelican voice in my head, it has to have an Australian accent.
well, not THE first ones-but the first ones I saw on flowers. It’s quite fun seeing how close you can get without pissing off the bees.
Even though it was a balmy 90 degrees in Fountain, we went to the Nature Center for a nice walk. I think Brady may have enjoyed the stroll through Big R more than the nature center, Big R has AC!
Pretty sure this is the nest. I did, before I had my camera in my hands, get to see the hawks run off a Great Blue Heron who had landed in the tree near the nest. Always fun to see a blue heron land on a tree limb, all wings and legs.
I was at Quail Lake for Lunch, the Herons were both there. I swear my wife has talked to these two birds, every time I get within 50′ they fly away. I managed to sneak up on one down in the corner by the dock.
this guy was skittish as all get out, bolted when I got to close from the other side of the creek (approx 150 yards). He did however briefly fly right over head, once.
It was a gorgeous sunny day today, temp hit 60 before the wind started to pick up. we took the dogs down to the park for a long walk. We saw a few critters along the way.
I was out looking for hawks on thursday, I got a glimpse of one who bolted when he saw me. He’s flying away from me but I still like the color in his tail. The crow was in the park, I thought he had a peanut. I guess the crow thinks he’s a raptor. The sunset tonight was nice, as was the moonset.
