My last stop on this 3-day birding trip was a dinner break on my way home. The small town park had a nice little nature trail on which to stretch my legs. All of these beautiful trees must contain birds, but they weren't very active. There was only a Turkey Vulture flying overhead and the occasional small flock too distant to identify as the birds crossed the sky.
I found a Red-eared Slider enjoying the river.
I ate my dinner in the shady picnic area.
I didn't want to leave without a picture of something feathered, so I took another lap around the nature trail.
Finally! I found a Ladder-backed Woodpecker willing to be photographed. Another lifer. I believe I live just outside their range.
I watched for a little while, took some photos, and then drove another several hours home.
