Still no sign of the Blue Heron, and Warblers aren’t here yet. But we have other attractions. I’m happy with just seeing a Robin looking smart and handsome:
Or this Red-winged Blackbird, calling across the pond to a hopeful prospect:
Signs too of someone working hard. Soon we’ll have no more trees:
The usual suspects? Leave it to the Beavers. It runs in the family. The little one learns the trade early. Here he is. Look at that face, can you blame him?
Wait… I need to check my eyes.
Is that Paddington Bear swimming in the pond?
The main attraction by the pond is definitely the Owlington Family. There are always nature paparazzi gathering outside their home about 40 ft. up in a hollow tree trunk, huge lens and tripods set up below waiting for the tiniest movement. The babies are showing their faces a bit more now, although still snuggling up in their nest all day:
Interesting that there’s always one that’s more alert and nosy while the other rather sleeps in:
Looks like he’s got his Mama’s eyes:
More photos to come as spring warms up more… and as the owlets fledge.
