People Watching on First Sunny Day at Woodward Park


Saturday the flowers were blooming and the sun was shining at Woodward Park. It’s that time of year when Spring is Springing but the trees haven’t leafed out yet.


The critters were out scrounging around.


People were flocking to enjoy the sun and the quiet of the place.


This couple went old school with a blanket and a dog. I wish we had dogs that could just lay down and be quiet in a public place. No way, especially with a bunch of squirrels that need a good barking and chase.


I was totally jealous of this guy or gal. I’d never seen a hammock that closes up like this. What a great place to take a nap.


Like I said, everybody was catching rays.

Camera Critters – Hawk


We had a visitor to our backyard land on son’s trampoline. It was checking out the action at the bird feeder. The birds were all gone. There was the only critter at the feeder. He didn’t move a muscle.


I don’t think he was fooling anybody though. The hawk took off and did a fly by on the squirrel and left. My fully automatic camera helpfully focussed on the branches.


I’m not at all a bird guy but I think that it may be a Sharp Shinned Hawk. It was very small and has a square tail. Don’t be afraid to offer a correction. I’m still trying to learn these critters. Wife Sweetie tells me that the squirrel is a fox squirrel. We have lots of them visit the feeder.
