For my entire life on Sunday mornings, you will find me most often in Bible study and church, but one Sunday a few weeks ago, I decided to take a day off from my norm and took a journey down to the Ohio River.
I was on a mission of sorts, to see if the Peregrine Falcons were nesting on one of the bridges in downtown Louisville, as well as take a walk on the newly created walking bridge, that crosses the river...well almost, for it is not quite complete.
I never saw the Peregrines, much to my dismay, for that would have certainly perked up my personal sadness that has followed me now for over 3 1/2 months...ugh.
There was however a number of Ring-billed Gulls and one really cute duck that was hanging out with them.
I am linking up with Mary for:
Happy Monday, Happy Week, Happy Mosaic Monday~
I was told by my friend Kate with the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Department in Frankfort, that the Peregrines may either be nesting on the JFK Bridge, shown below, which I saw no signs of
The Big Four Railroad Bridge, that had recently been turned into a walking bridge,
no signs there either.
The first image in the top left hand corner of mosaic below, was kind of amusing, for it looked like the duck was taking flight, but that is it's head with Gull wings in front of it...
When the Gulls took flight, the Duck seemed confused~
The walk out on the bridge was really wonderful, but the wind was extremely cold that morning.
Temperatures were well below freezing and then walking out over water with all of that cold framing...not such a great idea, but I am glad that I went and will do so again, when the warmer weather arrives~
