We started today's wanderings at Sky Meadow State Park...The wind was fierce, and we decided we really didn't want to do the VERY steep trail on a day that we weren't likely to find many birds out where we could photograph them.
This indigo bunting was about the only bird, other than blackbirds and house sparrows that we saw at Sky Meadow. And he was far, far away!
So back to Shenandoah! Limberlost is at least sheltered from the wind, and we didn't want to just go home. We got there close to noon - so there wasn't too much going on...and it was crowded and loud! We don't usually go on week-ends and this reminded us why. Of course the first thing we heard was towhees. Down at the bridge, this one decided to take a bath while we were there.
Hard to tell what's going on, with the black feathers, dark rocks and water splashing everywhere.
Gotta get his face clean.
Just splashin' in the "tub".....
