April Arrivals

 The beautiful Hooded Merganser
 Two adult males and one female

 Oh Canada ~ Geese of course.
 David got some great shots of a flock of Ring-necked Ducks last night at dusk
Our property seems to be right on the border of their migration route and summer breeding grounds. 
They are not a common sight here.

 And a sweet shot David got of four girls enjoying the last warmth of the afternoon.
Our female red winged blackbirds.
Greater Yellowlegs or Lesser... we think Greater.
More of our Geeseleys. A comforting constant on the meadow.

In pretty short order the ice and snow 
will be something we're looking forward to seeing again.
 In the meantime, this is such an exciting time of year.  We're loving it.
Thanks for dropping by.
