A Sunday walk in the game land

The morning was overcast but dry, and whereas the previous week I had no photos, this Sunday made up for that.

The first bird I came across (that is, one close enough to photograph) was a white-throated sparrow, one of several. The white throats are among the winter birds of central Pennsylvania.

Overnight the temperature went below freezing, so there were a number of different ice forms to photograph, including this one of thousands of icicles.

High overhead a trio of turkey vultures were circling, looking here and there. Below is one of them, turkey vultures being among the most effortless flyers.

Next comes one of those strange photographs, one that I find exceedingly pleasing. I call it an antlered branch creature. Awesome antlers! Note the eyes too.

Toward the end of my walk I came across a yellow-bellied sapsucker. For whatever reason, I come across one or another of them in January.

It was definitely a good walk.
