another week of waiting.............

Returning birds make the best of the late spring
Arriving into a surprising winter landscape
Feeders need filling twice a day

Purple finches
Ovenbird (1)
Wood ducks
White hawk on a kill in the sideways snow.  Looked like a Gyr - couldn't be - maybe a Prairie Falcon
White throated sparrow
Red wing blackbird
American kestrel
Turkey vultures

The beaver emerges from the only open hole on the lake
A muskrat is squashed on the commuter route
Turkeys and deer cluster along the south facing slopes of the highway, seeking bare ground

Waiting for forty degrees
Lake winter kill a definite possibility
