Spring Is In The Air

Robins singing
Seem to say
Spring is near
Someday, someday.

So beautiful and peaceful 
As I watch you silently float away
Leaving behind a shadow of your reflection.

This tiny Brown Creeper was a prize to capture. They only walk up trees looking for a morsel of food. When they reach the top, they fly to the bottom of the next tree and continue looking.

 A leg, a few vertebrae and sacrum bone from a deer.
 I found these antler sheds lying like this waiting for me to discover them. Searching gets my eye honed in for small things, such as when I go after Morel Mushrooms the middle of next month. It is fun to roam the woods now before foliage forms and it is hard to get through some overgrown areas. My daughter's reply was what was I going to do with the ones I found. Not sure, but they are treasure aren't they? I had walked more than two hours before finding these and another down the way. Getting lots of exercise, and finding lots of other things to enjoy.


  1. Lots of good stuff today.
    So the Creeper starts at the bottom and works its way up:)
    Is that a picture of you, Steve? It's a good one.

  2. Creepers are hard to get. I've seen them three times but I'll bet that I've passes them many times.

  3. Wish I could say spring was in the air here. All we have is snow and more snow.

  4. the little brown creeper is a new bird to me. love the fungus faces.

  5. Nice shots...though you could leave out the reminders of death... :) just me...

  6. Loved learning about those cute Creepers!
    A great post & lovely finish with the crocuses!

  7. The faces in the tree are funny. What I want to know is what happened to the robins I was watching yesterday? This freezing rain and snow pushed them back to whatever shelter they have.

    1. They go into deep woods. I saw some out today with a cover of some small flocks of Red-winged Blackbirds.

  8. I really like the first robin shot and the one of the Brown Creeper. Sounds like you were blessed to get that one. So interesting about the way they feed.

  9. I always admire your pictures of bald eagles. And I always wish I could geta few like that. I swaw a few of these big birds here this year. But like most other animals here, they were near the busy highway.

  10. I'd never heard of those creepers, how cute is that?!

  11. I love the brown creeper photo. They are so fun to watch.

  12. I love the things you find and see! Great post!


Keep it positive and informative,I enjoy hearing from you!
