I am going to be blogging and commenting less starting after this Critter post.  I  will be posting just once a week with my Saturday's Critter party.  I just feel the need to slow down and take a break, blogging, commenting and computer time. 



I have some of my yard birds to share, with the weather lately I have not been able to go far from home.






The female Junco looks a little more brownish than the darker male Junco.


The Blue Jays try stuffing in as much as they can into their beaks at one time.







We have had some little snow storms and some icy storms, the first week of February. Below are some Cardinals and White-Throated Sparrows and some Juncos sitting on the deck and plants. 













I appreciate and thank everyone who links up their post and for all the wonderful comments this past year !

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday,

On January 27, hubby and I went on a hike at the Hashawha Nature Center. A local park with some nice trails, a Raptor Center and camp in the summer for the kiddies. We had great weather, it was in the low 60's and sunny. 

These birds have been injured in some way, they can not survive in the wild. My photos are  of the Red-tailed Hawk, Barred Owl couple and there was a Bald Eagle. I do not like the cages but if you click on the photo, you can at least see the birds better.


We took the loop trail, at this section of the trail below it was mostly uphill. A few hikers (young hikers) passed us on the trail.


A pretty view of the sky and clouds.


The park also has an environmental center and a visitor center.


The trail starts off with the boardwalk near the lake.


We walked pass many fields, this one had corn planted in the summer.





Jan 30th, almost the full moon.





Jan 31st, the Super Blue Moon.


The full moon setting behind the trees.



I am thankful for all I have, I try to remember there are those (around the world) who would be happy to have mine and all of our bad days. 
I am thankful to take life day by day. 
I am thankful for all your visits and comments. 


Thank you Michelle for hosting. Thankful Thursday
