Guess what? Remember the robin that built a nest on our porch? Well, after the babies fledged, we started using the porch again. We sit out there to read and the kids come in and out that way, so the robin didn’t reuse the nest. But then we went away for a week and when we came home, there were two eggs in the nest! The next day, mama robin laid a third egg and she has been sitting on the nest ever since. Yeah, more babies!
Our woods are full of blackberries right now. They are so pretty and so good.
I love the blue color on this damselfly. Often times they look very black, but when the sun hits them, you can see that vibrant blue color.
This Grackle was tucked up in the leaves and not easy to see. He was, however, making a ton of noise, which helped me spot him quickly.
I have American Goldfinches at my feeder all winter–and they are in their drab winter plumage. The summer plumage of the males is so striking.
Here’s another picture of the House Wren singing away. Love these little birds.
I’m getting ready for a trip to the beach next week. Need to brush up on my shore birds–can’t wait!
