While we're out in the open fields, we see and hear a lot of Western Meadowlarks. We see them poking around in the prairie grasses:
... and perching up in trees:
Sometimes, we see Kingbirds. Here is an Eastern Kingbird:
And here is a Western Kingbird:
Sometimes we even see Red-Winged Blackbirds! We heard this male singing and singing to his mate:
Can you see his red wing? Mom looked around and eventually saw Mrs. Red-Winged Blackbird!
They look a lot different than the males, don't they?!?
Here's a clover blossom that Mom liked for some reason:
I can't explain it.
Oh. And since all of our walks start by us going out in front of Ao4 Headquarters, here are a couple shots of our Peonies:
If you'd like to see more shots of the Peonies, please visit our Garden 2014 album at this link.
Unless Cam has anything to add, I think that's a wrap for this week.
|"I've got nothing. Mom, on the other hand, seems to have cantaloupe."|
"Mmm... cantaloupe! Now THAT'S a mouthful of serenity!"
Have a wonderful Sunday - and remember to enjoy the serenity all around you!
