Last Saturday after watching the Southern Pines annual Christmas parade…
Jeff and I needed a walk, so we went to one of our favorite spots for walking and birds here in the Sandhills of NC.
There seem to be many Red-breasted nuthatches in the area this year.
We walked the paths thru the Longleaf Pine forest.
This is the habitat for the Red-cockaded woodpecker.
What do you think?
I take a photo of this tree just about every time we visit.
We are in the Sandhills region of NC
The Sandhills is a region in the interior of the U.S. states of North Carolina and South Carolina. It is a strip of ancient beach dunes which generally divides the Piedmont from the coastal plain, and is the evidence of a former coastline when the ocean level was higher, or the land lower. The beach deposits were formed principally during the Miocene Epoch, circa 20 million years ago. Typical beach fossils are found along the front edges. The coastal plain is terraced from other ocean levels, but none appear to have been so long-lasting, so as to build up dunes of this size.
Here I am shooting shadows again..It was a wonderful day for shadows.
Always a pleasure to visit Weymouth Woods
