Clear Creek Trail 2nd Day of Spring

Since it’s the 2nd day of spring, we went for a walk on the Clear Creek Trail in Coralville (a stone skip away from Iowa City). The trees were bare except for the buds about to burst that Sena gets so excited to see this time of year.

The birds are shy because there’s not much cover. But they’re out. A Red-Headed Woodpecker peeked out at us from the top of a dead tree. A shy pair of Canadian Geese allowed themselves to be filmed briefly before paddling away.

There was still a little snow covering the creek, despite temperatures in the mid-70s.

Another great spring day. We’re lucky—and grateful.
