Carolina Wren left her nest, hopped across the front porch and flew away to my neighbor’s Dogwood tree where
she joined two Song Sparrows and made some noise
but not as loudly as a few Tufted Titmice. They didn’t sit still on Sunday morning but a little tart sat for me today.
It was a morning song fest of pent up energy that ended too quickly. If I could, I’d spend every daybreak on the porch. Beginning the day with a smile sets the tone. To see a few birds residing here without feeders is encouraging! However, I do miss those close-up photos.
If this entertainment wasn’t enough, I found a bird haven during my walk.
When the fire ants stop attacking I can walk one-half mile around the pond, close to its edge, and near the foliage that attracts a few birds I don’t often see in my backyard.
A young Weeping Willow stood firmly on Sunday, holding up two Eastern Bluebirds. On Monday, not. A second one fell today.
Do beavers work in still ponds? I want to find that beaver.
I heard Feeee-Beeee before I saw it.
Phoebe posed so nicely but far so away…
I wouldn’t ordinarily show this Sparrow as the photo isn't very good. The liquid background makes it a keeper for me.
We fell back an hour but I still wander in darkness. Do you?
