Governor Bridge Park

Today was a dull, chilly day with temps in the low 40s.  I worked on one of my boats and then took a quick walk around a local natural area about five miles from home.

In warm months this park is a favorite of bird watchers and canoeists.
The small ponds were frozen.  I just missed a photo opportunity with a bright red male cardinal.  The winter berries will have to stand in as a substitute.
The snow from last week was still around in the shady areas on the path to the canoe launching area.
All quiet at the launching site.

The Patuxent River was ice-free.  The Patuxent flows into the Chesapeake Bay.  You can read more here:
This woodpecker was one of the few birds seen today.

He was busy doing what woodpeckers do best.
