Yesterday was a beautiful, spring-like day - sun was shining, and a sweater was enough. Hooray! We spent the morning watching the birds in the trees and at our feeders and birdbath. We had our usuals.Ollie, the bluebird.
Mr C. - I'm trying to watch the cardinals and figure out what's going on. The female is building a nest, but as recently as yesterday, I saw two males squabbling - have they not worked this out yet?
THE SURPRISE OF THE DAY! A hermit thrush. I have never seen one anywhere around here. He was on a closer branch when I first noticed him, but he flew back when I opened the window. My husband has a little further "reach" with his lens than I do, so his pictures were a little sharper. But we got a bazillion shots!
This morning we're heading for Shenandoah National Park, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, about 45 minutes from our house. Should be lots of winged travelers...we are hoping so anyway. Maybe my bear this time (?) White tailed deer for sure. I'm hoping for a great post tonight.
