Two days after the big storm, I decided to check out my usual local birding spot. It's just down the road from my house. Looks like I'll need my chest waders if I'm going to walk this way. I was feeling thirsty at this point, and wondered if the water was safe to drink.
Here's is a view looking down on a field that I visit throughout the year. I often find Brown Thrasher in the field as they sometimes nest here. Can you see the Sycamore tree in the distance?- Birds singing in the Sycamore Tree........ Here is a Brown Thrasher that I saw singing in the top of the very same Sycamore tree last spring. Brown Thrashers usually sing a song twice in a row before switching to another. They make themselves very noticeable in the spring, but become very secretive in the summer.
This horse is friendly. There is a black horse that will run toward me when I get in his field. I have to ease my way in and walk way around him. This picture of the horse was taken a week ago. It is grazing only about ten feet from that Sycamore tree. What a difference a week makes!
