This is our Preparation Day and so we got up early and did a Spring Walk. It was a very nice day and we had a little breeze which was really nice. We walked past this Cyress Tree which was planted in 1857.
The roots are coming out of the ground. I don't understand why.
We walked up this road that was part of the Martyrdom Trial were Joseph and Hyrum rode their horses on the way to Carthage.
We walked past these beautiful flowers in the front of someones yard. I just had to take a picture to show all of you, on our blog how wonderful the flowers are in Nauvoo.
In our walk we saw these geese and their babies, so cute.
Another thing I want you to enjoy are the birds we have in Nauvoo. They are singing all the time. Here are some Beautiful birds that live here in Nauvoo.
These two birds are called CARDINALS, there are a lot here in Nauvoo.
I don't know the name of this bird but it is a pretty yellow color.
This was taken in the snow and I don't know what this bird is called.
Here is a cute Baby Bird.
The picture to the right was taken by Elder Duncan at their bird feeder. If any of you readers know what the names of these birds are please tell me so I can add the names to the pictures, thanks.
Now these next birds will be pictures of Eagles. A Temple Missionary took these pictures.
The Eagles are a very large beautiful bird.
The Eagle sees something he wants so he fly's down to the Mississippi River.
Almost got him!!!
Good Catch!!! Here is the Eagle catching a fish, cool huh!!
Look how many different birds Elder & Sister Monney got in this picture, Awesome.
The Monney's got these HUMMING BIRDS fighting.
I don't know which bird won!!! But it is interesting !!!!
I didn't take any of the Bird pictures but they are fun to watch and we see a lot of birds as we walk around the town. We sure do love this place because we feel the reverence here as we walk the streets in Nauvoo.
