Zephyr was named in 1865 after the Greek “zephyros” which means “the west wind whose breezes help produce fruit and flowers.”

I also explored more of the Holland River Wetland Trail:
Birds that I heard include Belted Kingfisher, Purple Finch and Ruffed Grouse.
I was able to photograph these:
And time remembered is grief forgotten,
And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,
And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins. – Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837–1909)
great pictures,especially of the Turkey Vulture, it almost looks as if he/she is “modelling” for you….a nice day to be out on the trail, thank you……Rosemarie
Wow! Thanks again, Miles! I didn’t realize (or maybe I forgot) that Turkey Vultures have red heads! (I should have, but I don’t generally see them up close.) They look like–um–Vultures!
Thank you so much for these wonderful pictures that you send.
Many of them would make great posters too.
I enjoy receiving your posts.
