Got a good reason For taking the easy way out


Art of Connection...

Traveling to find the wintering Whooping Cranes at Goose Island, I stopped at a few other sites.  I posted a partial photo album in my previous post - - And this is the continuation of my hunt for the wintering birds....



LINDA CASTRO BIRDING SANCTUARY


ALONG THE BAY on Goose Island Park Road


A massive bull in the field and boardwalk along Tule Lake East


A hidden stone marked for Valentine's day "HIS" and a Snowy Egret

The 'hidden rocks' campaign is to promote random acts of kindness - "The ART of CONNECTION" This is the 2nd one I've found while out on my birding treks. Kinda fun, and I'm seriously thinking of joining in on this fun way of spreading kindness to those that would appreciate a smile and good thought toward them!!!

Along the shore of Copano Bay on the park road, I spied a few -five- of my targeted bird!! [more photos will be shared next Saturday on my bird blog]. Behind the cranes and the road sign is the bay...not visible 'cause of the fog!!!

  1. What a neat movement that one is, Anni. I think it's a great idea and if you do it, I'm hoping you'll tell me all about it. :-)

  2. Hello, great photo of the Cranes and the pretty egret. I found some of the hidden painted rocks in Florida, some are beautifully done. The painted rocks I found I left behind for others to find. Enjoy your day and weekend!

  4. Love the foggy shots, it has really been soupy here lately. That is a huge bull, and he looks so calm and quiet. Nice shots, and I hope your next adventure nets you a sunny day, and more shots of the cranes. I hear we are expecting several more inches of rain...yuck.

  5. That's a nice boardwalk. I have been painting rocks for years and give them away as paper weights. Now I'll hide some. Great idea!

  7. The foggy Crane picture is so soft and beautiful. I want to walk on the beautiful curved wooden walkway lined with greenery. The Snowy Egret is is fancy! I have never seen one.

  8. We have that same rock movement in my small town. I have found a couple and participated in it. Kindness is always appreciated and we need more of it.

  12. Painted rocks are the rage. I even did a few and had my oldest son take a couple to Cario. Although not sure what happen to them.

    1. Me either! To top it off, he had a virtual harem of lady friends...that makes a bull quite territorial. 😊
