There are 4-5 Sandhill Cranes that are residents, this crane family must live here year round.

Saturday's Critters #147

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

While visiting Shenandoah National Park, our only black bear sighting was at the  Big Meadows campstore parking lot. I notice a lot of people standing around and looking up at a tree. We had to go over and see what was going on, the Black bear was up in the tree top eating acorns.

The bears face and look at those claws!


Just a little bit of the bears face and nose below.



My You tube video shows the bear coming down the tree after a park ranger used some kind of paintball gun to spook it. We were told the bear was there for a week hanging around too close to all the people going in and out of the campstore and the Big Meadows Visitor center. I hope you watch the video till the end you see the bear is safe and running away. Running the opposite away from us and the crowd of people. 






I may be away from the computer this later this week, I will be be visiting everyone as soon as possible. My only post will be Saturday's Critters for now, I hope to be back to normal soon. 


As always thanks for the visits and the nice comments. I also thank everyone who is linking up and sharing their critters.. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!

Cordorus Reservoir Pennsylvania


Hello,

Hubby and I decided to visit Cordorus Reservoir, after visiting our son who lives nearby.  We are still watching Nibbles, our son's cruise ship returns to Florida Tomorrow. Please say a prayer for all in Florida and the path of Hurricane Matthew!


We noticed the water level was way down. The mud flats at the reservoir are a great place to see birds like the herons, egrets and migrating shorebirds. Birds seen at the reservoir, the Killdeer, Great Blue heron, Green Heron, Great Egret, Mallards and Wood Ducks.


We pass this farm on the way to the Cordorus Reservoir. A nice fence scene for Tex's Good Fences meme.


Walk this way, a Great Blue Heron




A view of the mud flats and Cordorus reservoir in Hanover Pennsylvania.






Another farm on the way home. Lots of fences below.





The same evening this was our sunset from the deck.



The colors changed to a more pinkish colored sunset.


I hope you enjoyed  my birds and scenery from Cordorus, it is also a State Park in Hanover Pennsylvia. Thank you for your visit and comments on my post. Enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!


Here is a list of linky parties for part of the week, I hope to see you there.

October already?


Hello,

October has arrived quickly for me, the days are just flying by. We are dog sitting for our grand-doggie Nibbles the first week of October. Our son and his friends are going on a cruise. I hope he has a great weather for his cruise. Their cruise ship returns to Miami tomorrow, please say a prayer for all in Florida and the path of Hurricane Matthew!

 These are some photos from our daytrip to Shenandoah National Park. When we first arrived in the park we saw some fog and low lying clouds over the mountains. We still had some nice views of the valley and river. We took our favorite walk on the Limberlost trail and we saw a Black Bear in a tree near the Big Meadows campstore parking lot. I will share the bear on my Saturday's Critter post.



The mountain tops are hidden with these clouds.


Looking down at some house and barns from the Skyline Drive.




Some scenes from our walk on the Limberlost trail.



Isn't this a cute place, I could zoom in from one of the park's overlooks. I love the farm house and there is a nice red barn.


My last two books were Magic by Danielle Steel and the #10 Anniversary from the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson. I recommend and enjoyed both books by Steel and Patterson. They are two of my favorite authors. I am now starting a new series by Lauren Carr, the first book is called Kill and Run.


Thank you for visiting and as always thank you for the nice comments.  Have a great day and new week ahead!

Here is my list of memes for the week, I hope you can check one or some of these fun memes and the participants post.

Happy October!!

Happy Saturday,  it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

I was able to see a few different warblers passing thru my yard. They do love these berries. Sorry about the photo quality, these images were all taken thru my dining room window. Below is a Tennessee Warbler with a Chestnut-sided Warbler.


The Cape May Warbler's hung around for a week or more.


I believe below is a Nashville Warbler.


Out trumpet vine bloomed for a while and the hummers love these blooms.


As of Sept 21st I was seeing these warblers below, on the top photo together is the Tennessee Warbler on the left and the Cape May Warbler on the right. Bottom row is the Black-throated Blue Warbler and a Cardinal. The birds are just loving these berries, yum!




As always thanks for the visits and the nice comments. I also thank everyone who is linking up and sharing their critters.. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!
