Spring is finally here as we eagerly await the warmer days. Yet so much rain has fallen in the region this week that many areas are still expecting flooding today and tomorrow. By next week all is forecast to return to normal, but it’s always amazing how fast nature can change our lives. The animals and birds just “are” and each day is one of gathering, building… living. We are not so different.
Today this Tufted Titmouse has been working at the last of the suet I put out for the woodpeckers.
A Rufous-sided Towhee stopped by for a visit the other morning. They must head south in the fall because this is the first one I’ve seen or heard in quite a while.
We enjoyed the first sunset of spring yesterday. I never tire of watching the sun fade behind the trees, or over the horizon at sea.
