Migration Season

imageIf I’m watching the birds during a couple months in the spring I notice a huge variety of bird species that I never knew visited my area, or at least don’t visit often. Among them this spring are:
Baltimore oriole
Gray catbird
Hermit thrush
Ruby-throated hummingbird
Blackburnian warbler
Yellow warbler
House wren

Nighttime is Playtime

Nighttime is Playtime

It surprised me that more people don’t know about these kits, until I realized that most of the times I see them are after dark. Even if they come above ground in the day, they’re not nearly as active. But now they’re starting to get spunky and Mom has a bit of a job keeping them in line….

It’s Earth Day!!

Happy Earth Day!
I would say plant a tree, but it just so happens to snowing pretty hard outside right now, and um, whether or not we have only 9 days until May, spring has apparently quit the job.
I’m feeling pretty bad for those geese I wrote about last time – poor confused little guys.
So, in short, there’s not much news here; but I promise to say if it ever warms up.
*sigh*
Well, wish all us poor cold Minnesotans luck.
