“In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.” ― Robert Lynd
One of my favorite past times is driving around my local country side especially on these cold Michigan winter days. I took off this morning to look for a Snowy Owl. My mother rode along which made the time more fun. We laughed about the birds that I failed to photograph. The morning was fun. I did not come across the Snowy Owl today. I saw the beautiful owl the other day. Of course, I did not have my camera with me at the time.
Today, I came across several different birds. I will admit there were a couple of birds that I could not identify. My mom and I spent some time this afternoon trying to narrow down the identity of the birds. I could identify the woodpeckers, Bald Eagles and the little Sparrows.
Two Bald Eagles out in the field. I wish I could have gotten a closer photo.
The sparrows that hang out in front of my house.
The two birds I questioned because I could not get a clear photo. I am hoping the birds are out again tomorrow. So, I can try to get a better picture. I think the one is a immature Bald Eagle. The other bird is a Northern Harrier also known as a Marsh Hawk.
Sometimes, just a country ride is all that you need to find inspiration in nature.
