Saturday

Along the Huckleberry Trail

Each day as a set out on my walks I ask myself "what amazing thing will I find today?" It may be at the beginning of each walk, in the middle or at the end, but I do find something amazing each time. On this day it was this Eastern Towhee. I heard him WAY before I saw him and slowly approached. He sat there and "called" for several minutes ~ I think there might have been a Mrs. Towhee near by. Sometimes all we have to do is slow down or stop .... and listen to the world around us ~ Amazing things WILL happen.

Some birds get their names for the song they sing. What does the towhee say? There's a type in my yard right now that literally says "tweet."

We have a Huckleberry Trail here in the New River Vally of Virginia.

What a lesson.
Yes, slow down and enjoy each day as it is- not as we sould wish it to be.
And forget about tomorrow.

These are beautiful birds! I've only seen and photographed one, but the photos didn't turn out, because it was really dark in the woods where I was.
