Out early with Barbara to the levee on 196th ave  arrived still dark, but younger eyes spotted this fox  all I could see was something dark and moving     lol... very poor lighting conditions  and playing with various camera settings this was the best I could do. Also seen were 2 deer very far away  several nighthawks fling and landing,  pretty sure a bald eagle flew over  what I could tell thru camera   the lens, the sky still grey and gloomy.Still no bobcats back again next week.

The two old birders went to Blairsville Georgia to go birding , and I saw many of my life birds, never seen before, Yes believe it I am a Florida girl born and bread. I was thrilled to see so many of the usual's. Went on many hikes to several parks and Forrest's  and to my delight found so many at her neighbors house just behind where she lived. This is going to be Part 1 of possible two or three showing our trip.Hope you enjoy.
