Look who's checking in this morning!
It's Johnson doing her Happy Otter impression!
Johnson and Charlie have settled into their new living situation with cat-like ease. They have an array of M*S catnip mice, a new cat- carrier, and have claimed the master room bed as their own. I don't think they could be happier!
My Cat Crew is happy to report that the chipmunks have returned!
Chipmunk TV is one of their favorite channels.
I keep a look out for the elusive Gray Jays.
So far just Scrubs and Steller's.
My California Quail enjoyed a spot of sunshine yesterday.
They are smart birds - always on the lookout for hawks and other predators.
I was surprised to see my Bushtits in the backyard yesterday.
I think they might have come to the feeders there, but I startled them.
As I am typing away this morning, I am listening to the Flickers' Spring Serenade! One of them is pounding away on the roof above my head. Ah, spring!
Still have lots of Juncos at the feeders. Two days ago a hawk swooped in and snatched at one. I couldn't tell if it was successful or not, but I can tell you it was so FAST!
I know Red-winged Blackbirds are considered to be rather common, mundane birds. But I don't see them very often on our property.
Yesterday a pair of young males came to have a meal at the suet feeder.
They hung around for about 30 minutes.
You can see the very beginnings of a Red Wing developing on this fellow.
Such a pretty melodic song the birds sing.
Are you ready for the weekend? I am!
