white-breasted nuthatch when I was rudely interrupted. Another person came stumbling loudly around the corner of the trail and the nuthatch, which was so comfortable with me, fled from this interloper.
At least that's how I saw it at the time. In truth, the other person didn't know what I was doing, and he was minding his own business. I actually like seeing people at these parks I visit, but only at the right moments and the right amounts. When I found this particular park a few years ago it was virtually empty, but now it's full of people walking their dogs.
This is not a good environment for a person trying to enjoy the quiet and trying to get loads of pictures. I love this park and I really don't mind the people, but I've been thinking that it's time to visit some of the other quieter parks a little more often. This one has been just so darn convenient for a quick walk though.
So what should I do? Continue to endure constant interruptions, or travel the very muddy paths of another park? That is the problem I am now facing. Maybe I could do both. I've been hesitant to go very far this year, but I also feel the need to push myself. I guess every day is a new adventure.
I'll be right back here tomorrow with something new.
