The robins have returned, right on cue. Their song is a welcome pronouncement of warmer weather.
A mother Canada goose decided to nest right outside of the church sanctuary window. At one point she started pecking at the window and we all decided she was yelling at us to, ”keep it down in there!”
Spotted a Dark-eyed Junco huddling in the branches of our backyard today. Apparently they are true snowbirds, coming down from Canada for winter. They must be tough to find 4° F a warm escape.
Met a peacock this weekend and immediately thought of how they wake @maique’s family up all the time.
I met one of the new baby hawks on a walk yesterday. Totally fearless about us walking under her. I wish I’d had my real camera with me but it was close enough to capture this with my phone.
They may look like they’re singing but this pair of Great Crested Flycatchers spent a good deal of the weekend attacking their reflections in our window. Thankfully, they do have beautiful songs once they calm down.
Somehow a Rose-breasted Grosbeak flew all the way down from the great white north to hang out in our backyard. Good thing we had snacks prepared!
