Last week a friend and I headed down to Kensington Metro Park in the Detroit area. It’s a great place with miles and miles of biking, hiking, horseback-riding, wetlands, lakes and tons of birds and wild life.
We hiked, and had handfuls of shelled sunflower seeds for any hungry birdies.
I had a chickadee, and tufted titmouse and a red-winged blackbird all take seeds from my hand! The titmice were the most skittish…zip!, seed and gone! The chickadees would sit and fill their beaks with seeds before leaving.
Luckily my friend is an excellent photographer, she actually caught the titmouse as it swooped through.
We watched a female osprey on her nest and were able to see the male osprey catch a huge fish! A lovely day!
