Visiting birds

Rolling down a silent road, sharing space with birds and very few other humans...

A woodpecker flew by, lighting on a tree trunk just ahead of me. I think he was a Downy Woodpecker; with his wings on his back he was decorated in black and white, almost appearing (at a quick glance) as a skewed checkerboard pattern.

The mirrored surface of a pond was momentarily ruffled by Canada Geese swimming, then taking off with a splash of sound.

I'm so glad that the quiet motion of my bicycle allows me to see and hear, to absorb the beauty of the sights and sounds around me.
Water appearing as a glassy surface, quiet, just before the flight of the geese.

Yes, that bright spot is the sun, attempting to break out of the dense cloud cover.
