Hiking at Radnor Lake in April 2012

April 7th, 2012 · Comments Off on Hiking at Radnor Lake in April 2012 · Radnor Lake

The weather today has been absolutely glorious. (And so was the brunette park ranger who waved at us as we left. Who’s that girl?) [ As in other posts within our family of blogs, you can see different images of the subject by clicking your browser’s REFRESH button… Enjoy! ] Beautiful women aside, today was […]

April 6th, 2011 · Comments Off on South Cove trail finally reopens at Radnor Lake · Radnor Lake

The eagerly anticipated reopening of Radnor Lake’s flood-ravaged South Cove hiking trail finally happened on Sunday, April 3, 2011. The South Cove hiking trail at Radnor Lake has been strictly off limits since the major flooding occurred 11 months ago during the first few days of May 2010. The scuttlebutt trickling down to me was […]

This short video shows a Canada Goose and three (3) of her goslings engaging in a little self-grooming activity – a good example of how young animals learn by emulating a parent.

April 26th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Radnor Lake

This hike took place on Sunday, April 25, 2010… Steve D. invited me on a Radnor Lake hike on Sunday afternoon, one day after the largest storms Nashville has seen yet this year. We took a chance that there would be parking spaces available in the East lot, and we scored a spot. Starting from […]

Radnor Lake Photographs: Tue., April 14, 2010

April 13th, 2010 · 3 Comments · canada goose, ducks, flowers, lizard, Radnor Lake, red-tailed hawk nest, skink, squirrel, turtles

Mike E. invited me for a hike at Radnor Lake today (Tuesday, April 14, 2010). It was sunny and 84 degrees F as we hiked. It almost seems as though we skipped spring this year and jumped right into summer temperatures. However, it must be a banner spring for plants, as I cannot recall such […]

Phases of the Moon: Diagram

April 12th, 2010 · Comments Off on Phases of the Moon: Diagram · astronomy, Radnor Lake

Male Turkey on Display at Radnor Lake

April 9th, 2010 · Comments Off on Male Turkey on Display at Radnor Lake · Radnor Lake, turkey

These events occurred on March 27, 2010… For some reason, I have not had many turkey sightings while hiking at Radnor Lake in Nashville, Tennessee. From what I hear, it seems others have a lot more luck spotting these big birds at Radnor Lake than I’ve had. Even though my turkey sightings at Radnor have […]

Chilly Hike with Don at Radnor Lake

April 8th, 2010 · Comments Off on Chilly Hike with Don at Radnor Lake · flowers, Radnor Lake, turkey

Thursday, April 8, 2010 We went for a hike at Radnor Lake today, even though it was cloudy and cool – not too bad, though: upper 50s or so. There was not a hint of direct sunlight, so the photos did not turn out as good as they would have in the sun. We did […]
