I have a few images from early in spring,so I had better share them before we get too far along in this season.Spring is an exciting time,with all the new birds arriving and then later the new growth.
The first thunderstorm of the season gave me a chance to capture some of my favourite scenes. Clouds and sky.
On my yard,the first new birds to arrive are usually the Dark-eyed Juncos.I love to hear their cheerful twittering and also to watch their interaction with each other.It seems that they spend more time chasing each other away then they do eating.
Just because I like these little birds,here is another picture of one of them. Sorry for the shadow across it's body.
Once the ice has melted the Canada Geese get busy preparing for nesting. This looks like an odd couple to me.The lead goose is noticeably larger than the other one,yet they seemed to be a pair.
These two have claimed one of the straw bales for their home.On a side note,I was at the same marsh on Sunday,April 26,and several bales obviously have geese nesting on them.
Earlier in spring it was not uncommon to see Bald Eagles around,but by now they have headed elsewhere to start the nesting process.These two,an adult and an immature Bald Eagle were hanging out near a place where there are often food scraps on the fields.
I close this post with one of my photos and an added Bible verse.
