Yard sightings

This squirrel was cooling off by splaying out on the feeder.

This is the first of our robins to leave the nest getting a snack from its parent (this one is from the nest by the garage).

Here we have the ducks who are nesting nearby.

Robin's Nest

For the last few years, we've had a robin using a nest on the side of the garage. This year I watched a robin building an nest in the bushes in the front of the house. Now she has three beautiful eggs there!

Ok. So maybe I don't have a white-throated sparrow. It might be a white crowned sparrow. I'll have to keep an eye out for them and get a better look. I am thinking it's white-crowned, even though the map I looked at didn't show them in my area.

Birds of Spring!

So, spring has arrived and we're hearing the evidence (at 4:30 in the morning, no less). I had three White Throated Sparrows in the yard today (thanks to my son for pointing them out). On Saturday my hubby saw a humming bird, so Sunday I put out my new humming bird feeder. I thought I saw one buzz by last night. Tonight I got a great surprise! An oriole stopped by for a drink! How about that! I'll have to go get some oranges for him.
