Gaetz Lake Sanctuary Walk

      Saturday afternoon I had some work to do at the Kerry Wood Nature Center and left some time for a good walk on the trails.

      It was clear and mild and as a result very pleasant.

     Somebody has been feeding chickadees in that area. The woods are full of chickadees. They get excited when they see you. When they discover you aren't one of the people who carries seeds , they very quickly leave. What cheek!

I like sunlit clearings on the trail.

More sunlit trail.

A few shadows thrown in with some bright sunlight

A pileated woodpecker hole 

One of the wet lands

One the rascals who is very tame
