We were getting ready to pull out of our drive way, when I spotted a Raven across the street. It was on the very top of our neighbors Juniper Tree. The Raven must be from royalty, as he was looking very noble.
We were driving past the Hawk tree, and spotted the male Hawk. He actually let me take a few pictures this time before he flew off. It was a cloudy day, so the pictures are darker then I like. He is such a handsome bird.
I took some pictues near the Hawk tree.
More pictures of Elizabeth Lake. I am happy to say, more bushes and trees have sprouted. Earlier then I expected. Maybe because the the rain we have had.
Part of the trail we walk. The tops of the trees survived, and some shrubs are bouncing back.
Someone has a sense of humor. The water level at the lake is very low, so someone put a for sale sign in the middle of the lake.
Have a good Monday, and stay safe!

We were almost to the lake, and I had DH stop so I could take a pic of this house. They always have their Flag flying, and I love all of the trees in their yard.
I love this old shed with the Star next to the house. Always reminds me of Texas.
And this is the road we were on.
We arrived at the lake. We were driving along the east end of the lake, when I spotted a House Finch. We did hear several birds chatting away, but this was the only small bird that cooperated. I must add, it was raining lightly off and on that day.
A bit down the road I took this picture. Love how the hills reflect on the water.
We started walking the trail that leads to the west end of the lake.
There were several American Wigeon's swimming around.
We walked further up the trail, and we were standing above the lake. The lake was a ways off, but still pretty. I turned to say something to DH when out of the corner of my eye I spotted a young Blue Heron. That put a smile on my face.
It was dusk, so we decided to head back. DH noticed a house on the hills. They had several lights on in their house, and the lights were reflecting on the water.
I cropped this picture, so the house is further away then it looks. What are the chances you would see this happening often.
Just had to get the sunset.
I have more pics of our trip to the lake, plus pictures of Daddy Hawk.
Have a great day!!

First I would like to ask if any of you wrote down TEALHAWK'S email address. She said she was going to close out her spark page on Monday. So I thought I would write down her email addy on Sunday. By the time I got there, her spark page was gone. She sent me a spark goody and asked if I would stay in touch with her, and I was hoping to do that. I feel bad now, because I don't have her email. If anyone has it, please spark mail me with it. Thanks!
Geranium in the garden area.
Henley the Hero
Our yellow Roses now have a hint of pink in them.
Different Rose bush.
I had fun with this Scrub Jay. He is in our yard all day, chatting away. He is a young bird. He flies to the Pine Tree in our front yard, then dashes to our backyard. Everyday he lands on this wire. I poked my head out our back door, and took several pictures. These were my favorites.
White Crowned Sparrow, also a young bird.
DH took both of these pics when he was in Leona Valley.
Plant and card DH bought me for our Anniversary.
Time to call it a day.
