We are so fortunate to have soooo many wonderful natural areas around us, within just a few minutes of our home. Today we took a stroll along the banks of the South Platte River as it runs through the South Platte Park, a natural area about the size of Central Park in NYC. There are several lakes and ponds in the park, all reclaimed from a gravel mining operation. This is a beautiful area, abundant with wildlife, and many opportunities for fishing, hiking, rafting, kayaking, biking, etc. Tonight I will share a few of the birds that we saw on our afternoon adventure!! Enjoy!!!

Your photos of the birds are just beautiful! My mom and dad are really into bird watching. I don't know the names of all the ones you had on there, but I bet they would. I love the photography!

Also loved the ladybug. How cute!

Have a great day!

You are lucky indeed to live so close to nature! I enjoyed your photos, especially the of the herons. I have to travel quite a distance to see them.

You have such an eye for capturing pure beauty, Trudy - I should let you practice on me... I could become your biggest challenge lol

Seriously, I love these candid shots. You almost want to whisper so as not to disturb them!

These are seriously beautiful Trudy. Have you ever thought of doing a coffee table book with all your wonderful images! They have such character! I would buy it! Pam

Thanks to all of you ladies for visiting!! I love the birds, and could spend hours outdoors watching them. In my spare time (HA!!) I have thought about joining a bird group, so I could learn more about these great creatures. Martha, I believe the yellow one is a warbler. I am not the best at identification, but according to my bird books, that is the best match!! Thanks again for visiting!! Hugs, Trudy
