Well , it has been a nice quiet week here not much happening other then the rain storm with thunder and lighting and lots of rain and high winds but the temps have been warm and the sun has finally made an appearance as of yesterday late afternoon and we finally got our later sun set since we had sprung the clocks forward the one hour and the sun set at 7:30pm and it didn’t get totally dark till 8:30pm I loved it, and as the sun set the peepers were chirping as were all the Robins and singing , totally music to my ears . I didn't get to photograph last nights sun set as I was to late after the fact and the positioning has changed and it sets just behind our little back 40 forest , I didn’t get a chance to get out into the field to take photos of it either , oh well next time .
I have never seen the Song Sparrow down on the ground under my feeders as he is usually in a tree or bush signing his pretty song around the yard but I guess he thought he would check the place out and peck about , he was soo happy he was eating and singing it was funny yet wonderful !
It was still a bit cloudy and rainy when I took these photos as we still were in the rain storm and I couldn't get to close to this little Song Sparrow as he is very skittish .
For such a tinny dainty bird he sure can belt out the sound of a pretty song !
As the rains stopped the Robins were very busy hunting for fly’s and other bugs , yes I said bugs we have them out already , worms and grubs and our grass is getting longer and greening up now to ! There were about 15 Robins all over the lawn but do you think they would all get together so I could get a photo of them all at once ? of course not that would be to easy lol !
Found this guy resting on my outside window , I don't know if he came in on the storms or just crawled out from a nice warm winter home to get a breath of fresh air and get going on his SPRING journey lol !
Then yesterday afternoon the rain clouds disappeared and the sun shone in the pretty blue sky , temps reached 12C or 54F and it was lovely a bit windy though but even the winds were warm .
It was such a lovely afternoon and so very SPRING like to , All the birds and critters were out and about feasting and enjoying the weather , Miggs and I went for a nice walk and sat outside in the sun shine watching the wild life in the yard .
Part of the valley from our front lawn. Many hawks and Eagles fly over this part of the valley as just down from the house there and across the road that is across from them is the river and the Eagles like to sit up on the tippy top of the trees there at the top of the valley and watch for fish in the river then dive in and scoop them up , I haven't got photos of that yet as it seems the banks of the river are very soft and quite dangerous to stand on at and can give away at any moment but I have had a few nice shots and sightings of the Eagles as they fly over our house to that very destination .
This is that part of valley from one of my kitchen windows this morning as the sun was rising as well as the temperature and the birds were singing the praises of a lovely day ahead . The temps are warmer at night now to dropping to only 5C or 40F which is nice and not cold at all quite refreshing actually as we can have the window open in the bedroom now at night and wake to the birds in the mornings oh how I love that .
Oh boy SPRING is only 4 days away WOOHOO !
Any who…. I am off for now as the sun is high in the sky and the outdoors are calling me !
Wishing you all a
Until next time
