The Gang's all here!

lilosophieApril 23, 2012

The juncos have left and the spring/summer visitors have arrived or are due any day.

Meadowlarks have moved back into their high rise vacation home: the top of one of the power-line-poles, a very safe place if you fear predators

Bluebirds are checking out accommodations, they have a choice of two dwellings, take their time to make up their mind

The green heron is strolling along the pond's banks, looking his usual grumpy self

Pielated wood-pecker attaching the other power-pole, his drumming can be heard a long way

Quail pairing up, so are the wild turkeys

The tanagers should arrive shortly

Season is defiinitely changing

Yep..............our juncos have gone as well. White crowns are still around though. Wood thrush and brown thrasher have made their appearances near my kitchen and woodpeckers of all descriptions. Saw a black and white warbler yesterday. Hummers should be showing up. They're always here by when the azalea bloom and they've been blooming a week.

The birdies are busy arouund here also. I can't identify them by name, but they are back. It's nice to see the cycle renew itself.

Some of the birds have already their young ones, only the weather don't play along. At the moment I use more birdfood than I did in winter.

Lilo, reading your post made me miss living in the country.
I even miss the Blue Heron though he made himself welcome
to the fish in my pond every day. I miss the Woodcock
that used to follow me around the garden.
I talked to him a lot and he must have liked the sound of
my voice. Shoot, I talk to all my critters.

Hi Janis - I talk to all my critters and to some either seen or unseen - heck, I talk to inanimate objects and get responses, just have to know how to talk to them, some need to be cussed and some need to be charmed
