Yard Critters on a Hot Steamy Monday

Male
Red-winged Blackbird

A Great Blue Heron, Red-winged Blackbird, a Cotton-tailed Rabbit and several different birds were out and about in my yards and along the road in front of my place here on the little farm yesterday afternoon.  It was a steamy afternoon here with the temperature at 90 degrees (F.) and very high humidity.  It has been off and on cloudy with brief rains recently so the humid weather has been with us for awhile.  I can’t complain as we do need the moisture.

The pictures really reflect the haze in the air.  I saw that big flock of Starlings again yesterday and took a picture of them in flight.  Very impressive numbers to see up above one’s home.  I also saw my friend the Red-headed Woodpecker up on a familiar perch.  Funny to see the different woodpeckers all doing similar activities – guess that’s just nature.  I took all of these pictures yesterday, July 23, 2012 here in the yards or on the street just in front of the property.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
