So darn cute and what a beautiful song!
It was a great morning for egrets and ibis. There were both white-faced and glossy ibis present, a nice surprise!
For several mornings, I’ve watched this muskrat come swimming along the shore and stop at this same spot to gather up grass. This must be the best breakfast spot for takeout for the little ones!
There were many egrets, herons, and others at the wetlands this morning. I have trouble identifying all the little peeps, but I think this bigger one is a greater yellow-legs.
We’ve been giving out raisins to robins in our yard for years. One of the super neat things about doing this is, occasionally, the parents bring the kids by for raisins!
My wetlands walk this morning included a beautiful singing common yellow-throat and a very chatty yellow-breasted chat.
It was wonderful to see all the geese parents and goslings hanging out together this morning! I love how they group up so there are more adults watching the young ones.
I also spotted a beaver, a couple of hooded mergansers, and a young bald eagle flew over looking for breakfast.
Our neighbor has a robin’s nest on his house near a security light. Every time the parents go to or from the nest, the light comes on. Lately, the light has been coming on a lot, which means hungry babies growing fast! This afternoon, I got to see my first fledgling of the spring sitting in our maple tree.
