Warblers, Warnings and Rain

It was an interesting walk today. I approached the valley via one of the stairways and could hear the Yellow Warblers calling back and forth, “Sweet, Sweet, I’m so Sweet.” Everything has filled out so much , I had trouble seeing into the trees. I saw a flash of Yellow and waited and watched. This is as close as I could get , but happy to see it.

I wonder if this was the coyote that I was taking photos of a few weeks ago?

I walked down the path to look for another Warbler as well as keep my eye out for Coyotes, wishing I had my walking stick with me and planning to put my camera bag above my head to look “bigger”, if I needed to. I didn’t go far because the clouds were getting darker and I heard the distant rumble. I stopped to take some photos of the sky.

A little bit of blue that soon disappeared.
Can definitely hear thunder now.
Rain coming down in the distance

It wasn’t long before I turned around and headed home. I got wet, but found it refreshing and it was very nice to have a warm bath when I got home.

  1. Your day is just the type I like to ‘experience’ weather…enjoying the rain and getting wet knowing I can then dry off and change into cozy clothes at home.
    Those yellow birds were gorgeous. But why would anyone even think of ‘feeding the coyotes’?
    😦

    1. You have said my thoughts exactly about the experience of nature and getting home to a bath. The feeding coyotes is that romantic view of befriending animals but STUPID, only resulting in an attack and the death of the animal. When I was taking photos of the female hunting, she would look right at me and was not afraid. We have a few hundred living in our river valley, so there are often sightings and even contact and they are getting bolder.
