It's been a pretty gloomy January thus far. Today was the first sunny day in at least a week, which of course meant I was itching to get out and shoot. Today's destination: the Bob Jones Nature Center on the opposite side of Grapevine Lake.
Post oak woodlands ring the nature center property, encircling land undergoing prairie restoration. The hiking trails are well-maintained mowed grass.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Signage is limited, and could probably be a bit more specific. ;)
photobomber can become the subject. Hello, Chipping Sparrow!
I also saw Northern Cardinals, Eastern Bluebirds, Carolina Chickadees, Dark-eyed Juncos and a Pileated Woodpecker during my initial visit to the Bob Jones Nature Center. A nice place that I look forward to coming back to!
