I am going through my pictures of 8-10 years ago and these jumped out at me.
This one is dated January 18, 2010 at the Pinecraft Park. I don't think we have as many Wood Storks as we did back then.
These next two are basically the same people. It was taken January 19, 2010 in the pavilion at the park. It looks like a mini sale in the making. I can name only two people in this photo and that is Esther Hochstetler from Centreville MI or Indiana and Morris Gingerich from Illinois.
I remember seeing this older gentleman but don't know if I ever knew his name. Does anybody know who he is?
Osprey overlooking the Phillippi Creek down by the Pinecraft Park.
These are in bloom down by the creek. I have no clue what they are called.
Sandals at the base of a Palm Tree.
The humble, lowly gentle Mourning Dove.
Tonight he accepted the carrot after I dropped it on the pavement. Maybe next time he will take it from my hand. I don't know where his wild cousin is. I haven't seen the wild one for a couple of weeks.
I also offered a young Blue Jay a peanut and he took it and flew up into the tree with his treasure.
Wagler construction is getting ready to build a new house on Gardenia Street.
Blood Mobile was parked at Hostetler's trailer court this morning.
Tonight I went looking for him and found him on the gravel at Miller's Trailer Court. I threw him a few peanuts and here he is munching on one. Now that his heart has soften toward me, I plan to bring him apple slices or carrots.
Vera is taking a brisk walk tonight. I don't know how far she walks but she takes her energy snacks with her. This does her good.
Every vegetation is lush green and grows like weeds. I was sitting down by the creek and inhaled the sweet perfume of these Trumpet Vines.
How many different kinds of wildlife can live in one Oak tree?
This vine with heart shaped leaves are Air Potatoes. They are non-native invasive plants and have been put on the Noxious Weed list in 1999. A couple of years ago local volunteers went through the woods at the Pinecraft Park and got rid of about 500 pounds of vines. The vines behind my house have free range.
