I was going through some photos and found a batch of them from late May that I had not processed. My wife and I had taken a walk along the Red Cedar Trail and I photographed some of the flowers and ferns that were out.

There were a variety of birds along the trail this week. The hundreds of Yellow-rumped Warblers that came through a couple of weeks ago are gone. I did find quite a few Ruby-crowned Kinglets along the trail. It is hard to tell them apart unless the male displays his crown. They are difficult to photograph because they are in constant motion and they are a very small bird. The Bald Eagles have hatched and there three eaglets in the nest. The nest is located at about the 1.5 mile mark in a large pine tree on the east side of the river.

This week the flowers have really started to bloom along the trail. Rather than list them I’ve posted photographs.
