Yesterday morning we enjoyed a 6 mile hike with friends at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park. Everything was coming to life with numerous wildflowers including Trilliums and Celandine or Wood Poppies along the trail.

Later in the day we decided to see what warblers could be found along the reservoir in Griggs Park and the area below the dam. Several people stopped to ask what we were looking at as we peered up into the trees. One or two were fellow birders with binoculars which is always encouraging. The number of warblers seen exceeded our expectations.
Redbuds, other flowering trees, and wildflowers were making an already cheerful day even brighter.
The Map Turtles were definitely taking advantage of the warm afternoon sun.
It wasn’t hard to imagine a Smallmouth Bass just below the surface.
Green is now winning out over the colors of winter.
Thanks for stopping by.
