Not-Quite Speechless Sunday: Evening shot in Edgewood County Park, CA

Edgewood County Park, San Mateo County, California


Edgewood County Park, San Mateo County, CA

One evening this week, after a busy work day, my husband and managed to fit in an hour's hike at nearby Edgewood County Park in the hills behind Redwood City. From one of the entry trails, we spotted this bluebird, sitting near a bluebird house, built as part of a recent project to bring back the declining numbers of bluebirds. It worked.

I thought I'd share it with you, in hopes
that the early evening light and the peacefulness of the scene enrich your day!

--- Come for a visit; Stay for a lifetime!

Lottie, that looks like a great place to take a leisurely walk.  It's great to see the bluebirds are coming back.

Hi there, Bob and Carolin -- and Gary, too. Glad you enjoyed it. Edgewood Park is in the hills just behind our busy,built-up area. Having wild lands so close is a marvelous escape, whether one is walking, trail running, or examining the wild flowers. And the Bluebird Project iss a success!

Lottie - this is a very pretty area, and appears so serene. Love the bird in the photo. The hike sounds awesome!

Hi Sharon, Gene, and Cheron, the bird posed so nicely for me; quite a treat, and it IS a serene spot. We're lucky!

Lottie, Glad to see the Bluebirds are coming back in your area. We have a project at my golf club in Naples and it is doing well.  Love it when I see one.  Makes me smile!

Lottie, This picture just relaxes me. It could be anywhere yet it is so serene it touches my heart. Thank you!

Hi Marcia -- yes, that project has been quite successful. Many volunteers built hundreds and hundreds of bluebird houses to encourage their return. Glad your project is succeeding, too.

Paul, it is a relaxing shot, isn't it? In our hectic lives I look for serenity when and where I can find it! I'm glad you enjoy it.

What a view. We are so lucky to live in the Bay Area. My son had Spring Break last week and my mom and I took the kids hiking at Rancho San Antonio open space. It was sooo beautiful (mine and kids' first time). We are truly blessed!

Hi Lottie - A lovely photo - and I'm so glad your bluebirds are coming back!

I have seen a lot of birdhouses in the middle of nowhere lately. I suspect it's the DNR's response to boost our dwindling wildlife. But to get a shot of a bluebird right next to the birdhouse is pretty darn cool, Lottie.

Hi Cari -- Rancho is a fabulous place; some pretty heavy-duty hiking and killer trail running. Do your kids like Deer Hollow Farm?

Debi -- thanks for your kind words. You're a marvelous photographer, so you just made my day!

Elizabeth, I was on the same trail last evening--looked for the bluebird, but of course will likely never see it next to the house again.

I just saw a bluebird up here the other day, Lottie.  (I live in the Detroit Area.)

I know that a robin is supposed to be the first sign of Spring, but I was perfectly happy seeing this blue bird.  (Honestly, around here, it was probably a bluejay, but I don't know enough about birds to be able to tell the difference.  It was blue, and it was definitely a bird--it didn't get flipped at me, either.)

Hi Chris -- I think we're all enjoying spring, especially after the winter so much of the country endured.Thanks for stopping by.

Posted by Lottie Kendall, Helping make your real estate dreams a reality (Compass) about 10 years ago

Lottie - the returning birds are one more sign of spring having really arrived

Hi Lottie: the kids loved the Deer Hollow Farm. My son was more interested in all the stumps to climb on on the way but my 2 year old daughter loved the animals - there was a VERY loud sheep that she still talks about a week later! ;-)
