The weather on the Riverwalk this morning was wonderful. It was in the upper 30s, low 40s, and Sadie was "pumped" and ready to go.
We met some interesting walkers this morning, stopping to talk with my fellow walker, John, whose disposition makes a perfect morning even more perfect with his positive attitude, stopping to let Sadie meet with Lucky (a pekingese we see nearly every morning), and stopping to talk with some other bird watchers.
Another highlight of the morning, as far a watching nature, was the observation of the two ospreys that seem to have returned to, hopefully, nest on top of a tower where they were last year. These hawks are beautiful as they sit on the top of trees waiting to swoop down and catch a meal in the river. I have some pictures of ospreys on my home page (click the large picture above to go to my web page). There was also a red-bellied woodpecker (pictured above) that was calling from a perch in a tree near the river. I am always intrigued by these little birds as they sit and watch or spend time hammering into some of the trees that provide them a tasty meal.
My mockingbird friend was there again, waiting to be photographed, and I always enjoy the ducks and geese as they hang out on the water and in the fields. I hope to get back this afternoon and go to Angler's Park.
It was another amazingly beautiful morning on the Riverwalk.
