At least at Breakneck Hill I may stumble across an occasional Eastern Bluebird, or two, or three or a dozen. And today, I also stumbled across a passing White-Tailed Deer.
Not bad. Not bad at all! Guess that'll be enough motivation to keep me walking the trails for at least another day!
I stopped under an apple tree to watch a Downy Woodpecker pecking at an apple that was still hanging in the tree. While I was stopped there, this deer came up over the hill, stepped easily over the electric fence and continued casually and slowly across the upper meadow into the woods on the other side. Magical. Not one minute after he disappeared, a dog walker came up the trail. Timing is everything.
