The creek was indeed very high today. In one low area it was almost over the banks!
I could hear it rushing over the rocks from quite a distance.
The crab apple trees are all very thick with pink blooms.
Our dogwood tree is also in bloom. I wonder why it doesn't bark?! BOL!!
There are lots of empty bird eggs all along where I go for my stroll. Most are blue, so I think those would be robin eggs, or perhaps bluebird eggs.
There were all kinds of birds this morning. Robins, finches, sparrows of not a few varieties, crows, Red winged blackbirds, blue jays, cardinals, ducks, geese, chickadees, woodpeckers - 3 or 4 kinds - titmice, nuthatches, herons, and doves.
When we were almost home growlmy got all excited because she saw a bluebird. They are bright blue on top, and orange and white on their undersides. Years ago she would see lots of them, as they nested in a big oak near the house, but not anymore.
So this was great, for her to spy it. There is a song or poem about these birds called 'The Blue Bird of Happiness'. Is anyone familiar with that?
She saw some orioles over the weekend, too.
Those orange and black birds along with the bluebirds would be good avian reps, for the GOFA , that is this month!
A lot of these birds are the sure signs of spring, with its beauty and new life. Esp after yesterday's rain, everything is growing and green with many splashes of colour, from tree blossoms, and bulbs showing off their flowers.
Well, got to go now!
That bird sounds pretty--the only blue birds we have here are blue jays-- but they are very pretty.
Jack, that sounds so beautiful!!! Thank you for taking the time to describe it for us! xoxoxoxoxo
I love birds - they're fun to bark at it!
Mostly all I see in Boston is pigeons and some cardinals.
We saw a bright yellow budgie on our back deck the other day... must've escaped!
Sounds pretty awesome!
How wonderful. Seeing the Bluebird is supposed to be a good luck sign, hence the 'happiness'. So this must be a good year for you and growlmy.
