All photos taken during our May 3, 2021 walk in Tucker’s Field. Good news, there will be some posts from Jasper coming soon to allleviate Tucker boredom.
T ucker’s Field was still our only walk choice,
U seless to whine about Meadows closure.
C learly it was time for us to rejoice,
K nolls covered in green made all seem rosier.
E ven the birds did not desert us this day,
R obins, woodpeckers and cranes did abound.
E very last turn led us a new way.
D own hill and up over uneven ground.
O nly a few others sharing this space,
U ncommonly warm, under clear blue skies.
T aking our time, as it was not a race,
? uestions all answered with contented sighs.
Sandhill Cranes on their way North.
They fly at altitudes of 1,800-2,100 meters (6-7,000 feet) and have wingspans up to 2.3 meters (90 inches)
Early spring was in evidence everywhere.
These signs mostly indicate boundaries bewtween Tucker’s and private property (including Bunchberry Meadows).
No birds on the ponds, but you could hear the frogs.
Our lunch spot looks the same from week to week, so far.
Our tree control shot for three weeks. Again, little difference.
Bits and pieces.
