Let's go bird watching!

We went out to the Schell-Osage Conservation area this afternoon. It is just a short drive from here. All kinds of water birds rest there on their way to their winter homes. If you get lucky you can even see eagles there sometimes. Not today though.
Do you see the white just above the green of the grass? That is thousands of geese in the water. I do wish I had a camera that took better far away pictures!
Just lots of calm, peaceful water here.
Just below the dark of the trees in the background are again hundreds maybe thousands of water birds.
Isn't this peaceful and lovely? Oh it was so crisp, quiet and serene out there today. Just the peace and joy of God's nature.

I leave you with a last picture of peace and serenity. May your heart and mind be as peaceful as this picture and if not, may you find a peaceful place in your heart.
I leave you with this video. You can't really see the birds very good. But above me crunching in the gravel and the sound of the wind listen carefully. You can hear the geese calling.

Oh what wonderful photos and video of God's beautiful nature. It was so relaxing to hear the geese in the distance. You could tell that there were a lot of singing together.

Thank you for sharing this video...it was a blessing for me to hear them....We have a few once in a while that drop in and out of our community.

May your New Year be filled with lots of love, laughter, health and enough blessing to meet all of your needs!

(((HUGS))) from me to you!

Such a beautiful place to visit and I'd love to sit there and watch all the water birds!!

New Year is a time for celebration of love, of life, of friendship. It's the time to thank God for wonderful friends, and to bring to their lives as much magic as they bring to ours...so here's celebrating our friendship and praying that its magic continues forever. Happy New Year to you and yours dear Michelle! xoxo

What a lovely outing you had. We have a lot of geese in our town - we have a lake right in the middle of the city. Unfortunately, they make quite a mess on the sidewalks around here!

Love the colorful granny square afghan-in-the-making.
