On my walk, last evening three cranes settled down. They seem to have decided to stay here instead of migrating.
Works for me!
The crows are working the farm over for something to eat
They are hard to photograph as they scatter quicklyy
Yesterday was lovely and warm so I put out two hummingbird feeders
Within twenty minutes I had a little Blackchin male followed quickly by his mate. (The photo is terrible; they were very shy and I couldn’t get a good shot)
As the evening started to fall down upon the earth the little birds took to their nighttime perch. For some reason, they have roosted here all fall, winter and they are still roosting in the large rose bush.
As the night grows darker they flutter way deep inside.
a pheasant took off in front of us
And joyfully, joyfully…the last of the birds has arrived! The Barn Swallows!
We are on our way to much warmer weather!
