Have I mentioned May is a super busy month? Have I mentioned our weather has (finally) turned and spring is here. Posting on this blog must take a backseat to days with sunny blue skies and warm weather.
However, I decided to share a very late Five On Friday post combined with a bird-watching post tonight. These portraits of spring fill my heart with joy. Maybe they will fill your heart as well.
ONE: The Robin Family
TWO: A Few Blooms
First, white flowers on a couple of not so stinky trees. Much prettier than the Bradford pear blooms. Can’t remember the name of the tree with these first blooms. The second is a dogwood.
THREE: More New Neighbors!
A new neighbor moved in next door to the robin family today. They tried moving in on Thursday and weren’t welcomed. Today, they were tolerated.
FOUR: This Thrush Seemed To Be Checking Out The Neighborhood As Well
I “chased” him around the front and back yard all morning before settling on thinking he’s a Swainson’s Thrush. Please, let me know if you think he’s a different type. Not even sure these are both the same bird. The bird in the second photo seemed a bit smaller than the first one. So nice to see a variety of birds around the yard again.
FIVE: A Few Other Creatures Wandering About The Yards
And then, there were bunnies…I caught this bunny bathing this morning. Not pictured, later I spotted a baby bunny hopping not far from the tree. He was in the underbrush well before I could go back and grab the camera again.
It seems this squirrel may have finally figured how to forage for his own food. Maybe.
And of course, the little gray cat continues to not be amused by the time I spend taking photos.
Has spring arrived for you yet? Linking up very late to Five on Friday hosted by the F.A.S.T. blog as well as with The Bird Depot hosted by I’d Rather Be Birdin’. Be sure to go visit both wonderful places!
