Getting started

Well, here I go, trying to keep up with the modern world. I thought I would try my hand at blogging and see how it goes. I love to walk in our community, it is full of wildlife. Birds are the most common creatures that I see but occasionally a coyote will show itself. Frogs can ofter be heard but rarely sighted as we are forbidden by the home owners association from approaching the ponds.

Today on my walk I took my camera. I spotted a hawk, probably a red shouldered hawk but I am not sure. There was an egret hunting in the meadow, song birds making a racket in the oaks, humming birds and phoebes. I am not much of a birder but I am getting better at identifying the birds in our area.
