Lots of birds here this week. Today alone I saw five wild turkeys, trumpeter swans, wood ducks, eastern phoebes, great blue herons, ruby-crowned kinglets, sandhill cranes, heard a flock of white-throated sparrows in the woods near my house, and the female red-winged blackbirds and the sedge wrens are back! Very good bird morning.
Flowers are really blooming, too. Purple and yellow violets have sprouted up along the trails. And the wood anemones have started to bloom down here as well.
It looks like mid May! Everything is getting green and lush. Really very pretty.
A couple of photos from earlier in the week:
