On a cold morning the red-bellied woodpecker was eating breakfast on my deck wall.
Two days after the shot above was taken, warmer weather appeared and an American Robin was finding worms to eat.
I was surprised that there were already worms to be found.
We continue to have temperature swings by as much as 50 degrees from cold nights to warm days.
Today (Sunday) the high was up to 70 F (21.1 C) but Monday night the low is supposed to be 17 F (- 8.3 C).
Monday afternoon it's supposed to sleet and snow.
Sunday was a perfect day for a walk at Lake Lynn.
Lake Lynn is only several miles from where I live but since I have Shelley Lake at the end of my subdivision street, I usually walk at Shelley.
There are similarities between the two lakes but differences too.
I'm not used to seeing so many gulls at Lake Lynn.
I need to remember to go to this lake in the summer and see if the gulls leave for the summer like they do at Shelley Lake.
I'm not sure what the water bird below is but the closest I could find online was something called a swan goose.
Below you can see the swan goose beside a duck and they look very different from each other.
The gulls and geese at lake lynn were very rambunctious.
I usually don't get a chance to photograph a mass of gulls flying at the same time.
I think these gulls were having a party.
There aren't too many trees flowering yet but the ones that are cheer me up.
