After taking photos today of a foster dog named Annie, I decided to wander over to an area nearby that I had never before explored, a bird wildlife refuge. Ah, it’s Spring so I decided to explore a little. It seems like it’s been ages since I’ve done this and taken photos of the area’s natural fauna. I used to do that quite often, but not so much so since I took up portrait photography.

So today I got back to my ROOTS – ha-ha, a not so funny pun! Anyhoo, it was a lovely day out today and many wildflowers were in bloom and there was a nice little path I took to explore the fauna. I kept hearing certain bird calls but I could not locate the birds themselves; I heard Cardinals, Blue Jays, Red-Tailed Hawk, and an owl. But no luck finding those.

But I was delightfully surprised to come across a wild turkey and a woodpecker! For fauna I found Spiderworts, Bluebonnets, and a Dandelion of sorts. And poison ivy!

So I hope you enjoy the fauna and birds I managed to capture with my camera on this little hike. Get out and enjoy the outdoors!
