Feels Like Winter

nov302016towboatmisslynnThis morning with the breeze blowing it felt like winter. I think we have turned the corner and it is time to settle in for wintertime. Thee leftover pics from the last few days at home along the Tennessee River.

We made the drive yesterday afternoon to visit out Louisville bunch. The remaining pics today are from Long Run Park. This little shift north and the leaves are almost gone from the trees here. Ready or not winter is here….

Red Shouldered Hawk Juvenile

nov272016redshoulderedhawkjuvenile3

It was a pretty tough shooting morning. The light poor. I did find one juvenile Red Shouldered Hawk in search of a meal at Kentucky Dam Village State Park. When I spotted it I stood in one spot and watched it shift from position to position studying the ground. Looking for mice, moles or voles I guess. The bird paid me no attention.

A Pleasant Afternoon

nov262016juvenileblackcrownednightheronWe had a wonderful Thanksgiving with kids, grandkids, and friends. Hope you did as well. The sun finally came out and I wandered down to the Tennessee River. Found one tree with a group of Black Crowned Night Heron both adults and juveniles. I thought they had all gone south by now. There was a little eagle activity. Not much else to report…
