Yesterday and today I took a morning bike ride. With the rainy season still here I have to take bike rides when it is fit. The last while it rained in the late afternoon or evening, so the evening bike rides can get a bit iffy. Yesterday morning I watched this big flock of birds getting their meal. This morning only a few birds were here, digging deep for the last of the goodies.
A dozen of these birds were the Rosetta Spoonbills. Overhead about 2-3 dozen parrots came landing in on a tree, being as loud and noisy as their reputation.
This morning at the end of my street met this squirrel with a brand new shiny pinecone. I sort of think she cut off the pinecone as there is no reason a healthy looking green pinecone should drop on its own. Anyway she wasn't about to give up her prized cone when I came biking up, so she bit into it firmly and managed to get it across the street out of my reach.
This morning I woke up hearing thunder in the distance. With time we had a good shower, brightening up the day. A few hours later I went for a bike ride. Everything looked clean and washed. This house had a beautiful blue look.
At Yoder's Deli parking lot this fan was twirling around with the wind.
One of the new houses on Clarinda St.
A tiny wild spot close to the foot bridge.
And the culvert on the north side of the foot bridge .
Tonight it was feeding time for the squirrels. A few of them decided to grab two peanuts and run. But there was no way any of them can carry two peanuts in their little mouth. The only option was to take one and leave the other one for the next squirrel.
I took a bike ride in the heat of the day to the park. I just wanted a good bike ride and I don't mind doing some sweating. I guess it opens up my pores. So I biked along the Phillippi Creek.
The north end of the park is more or less left to itself. This part is well kept where the squirrels look at me like I am a foreign object. They don't dare get close, not even when I offer them peanuts.
