A sunny Saturday spent hiking at Oak Road Nature Preserve! The trails and trees were beautiful, and the wetland is very full, making parts of trails muddy. A wonderful way to spend the morning.

Barred at Logan
We spotted this barred owl at Logan Creek today. We had actually seen him/her a few days back and stayed long enough to watch the parent catch “something” and bring it back to the nest tree. So today we were able to watch the nest tree and spot the return of momma or papa. We stay on the trail; the tree is not too far away. Beautiful day!

Ruby Needs a Caption
We were happy to see this Kinglet at Three Springs yesterday while we were sitting on the “water benches”. While Ruby is a bit out of focus, those eyes were just to good to pass up… what’s your idea of a caption for Ruby?
