Farewell Snowbird.

Looking around the sunlit yard this morning and I think the last of the Dark-eyed Junco's have left. There was no frost last night either which is good news. Hopefully spring is finally here and I can put some plants out.

Bloodroot


On Thursday I went outback and looked to see if my Bloodroots were out yet. Nope. No sign of them. Yesterday the temperatures were in the mid 80's as was today. When I checked this morning there they were, loads of them.

Loons

A quick walk over the dam at Memorial Lake was made pretty good by the nice selection of water fowl. A pair of Lesser Scaup and a pair of Blue-Winged Teal were nice as were the distant pair of Ruddy Ducks. What was nice was the 7 or so Common Loon and the solitary Red-throated Loon. One of the Loons kept coming into a sheltered bay and I managed to get this shot of it.

Chickadee

We have a kitty who we call Chickadee, this is not her however. This is an Avian Chickadee rather than the Feline namesake. Going through a load of old pictures I'm coming across some really good ones. This is from January 2nd 2009 taken with a Nikon D300 and 200-400mm Nikon lens.
