Mourning Doves in the grass!
I woke up with Common Flicker’s (CHECK) out in the yard this morning! Yesterday I had my first Pine Warbler (CHECK) and on Wednesday had my first Winter Wren (CHECK) for 2008!! I didn’t get any pictures of the Warbler and Wren since I was working . . . . but I was still ecstatic for their return into the area. I just love this time of the year because you just never know what you will see next!!
Common Flicker in my back yard.
This will be a busy weekend for me since Young Naturalist J and I are heading over to Erie PA for the Eastern Bird Banding Association Meeting. This is J’s first birding conference and being so close to home . . . it is great that he is joining me (actually, I didn’t really give him a choice if he wanted to go or not)! Tonight Marg is driving up from Toronto and spending the night here before we both make our way out to the conference. I will be great to see her again!
One of many Rusty Blackbirds that I saw.
Having to do a little house cleaning (with Marg coming) . . . I took a half day off from work and of course did a little birding. I quickly found some Rusty Blackbirds walking around a wet meadow and didn’t take long for them to disappear. Then I found this bird splashing in the water and not the least bit concerned that I was taking its picture!!
What is this bird splashing in the water??
Speaking of bathing . . . I have guest coming and I need to do some house cleaning! I will try to visit everyone’s blogs after I finish house cleaning and before Marg arrives. I will return to the blog world on Sunday!
Just an American Robin!
