Tonight - we see birds...

After the routine (yes we do the routine every night)

We were going to have a short walk between the rain drops

Then I saw a huge red shoulder hawk fly over head and I was done for. I love birds. I love to see them fly and I love the sounds they make. I open the window in the dead of winter to listen to the cardinals in the morning because it is that important to me.

Out street is about a half mile loop, but if you go down the private lane to where the creek is located you get in a full mile and a good cardio because of the steep climb up.

So on we went and checked the creek that was really flowing.

As we started back up the drive I saw this flying away.

UNREAL, I see them periodically when I cross the Little Miami River, but never this close to hear the sound of the wings flapping.
That was a good thing to see on an other wise rainy day.
Knitting socks, and a Eurobag just because I can.
Tomorrow is Saturday! WOO HOO! Love long weekends!

One of my favorite recollections from my house in the states was the blue herons that plied the creek or the retention ponds. Watching them either at work--fish eating--or in flight alwasy made me stop and watch.
Over here herons are grey. I have seen one or two but not up close.
