Finally, a day outside in the fresh air...sort of. It is supposed to be spring, but this weekend is the first it has really felt like it. It was too nice to stay inside, but Hubs has been recovering from the flu I gave him. Poor guy, and he had the flu shot. Anyway, he didn't feel like a hike in the woods so we took a drive down to where Hubs lived before we got married. On the way we took a detour through Sam Parr State Park. I thought it would be a little too early to find any interesting birds, but to our surprise we saw a male and female Wood Duck on a murky little creek. Sadly, they flew before the shutter opened. That's the first time I've seen a Wood Duck outside of the zoo.
On our way back to the highway, I saw this guy hanging out in a tiny tree beside the road. I think he was sleep flying. This is the only shot I got before he woke up and took off for a tree farther from the road.
