Yesterday Jeff and I went to Pee Dee NWR. It was a beautiful sunny day but quite windy.
I call this the day of berry birds because the blues and red birdies we saw. Summer Tanagers were singing all over the place, Blue Grosbeaks and Eastern Bluebirds greeted us in the grassy areas, over the water many Indigo buntings called and flew in front of us along the path, We also heard the American Redstart and lots of Cardinals.
Killdeer with Babies…they are so tiny.
Doing its little bobbing dance.
Look at all these tadpoles...Wow.. ...I took a video clip as well so some of you that might know what kind they are…could give me some more information.
These Zebra Swallowtails were all over the place and I chased them around to try to get a decent photo. I thought the colors were so lovely the baby blue and the strike of red toward the tail. Did you know this early spring form of this butterfly is smaller in size and lighter in color ?
We had a great time despite the wind.
Today is a gardening and cleaning day for me.
Jeff went for an early morning birdie walk.
I Hope whatever you do today….you find some joy in the simple things!
