My last post was titled Spring is Coming! Funny thing, or maybe not so funny, is that it seemed as if Spring took a few steps backwards! We are hopefully exiting this Sprinter (Spring + Winter) season soon!
There were some lovely warmer days that got me pretty excited at the prospects of getting out there and exploring some more but that ended pretty quickly! As I am typing this I can see the snow falling outside my window!
There is a positive side to the colder weather…maybe not so much for our migrants but our local birds have been flooding the feeders. I have even had a pair of cardinals visit my yard on a few different occasions! Though, I only managed to capture a photo or 2 of the female.
Included in my offering from these last weeks is a landscape photo and some different wildlife, including a beaver swimming on the Mississippi.
I was also very excited to spot a pair of Ring-Necked ducks as well. A lifer (birds I haven’t before seen) for me!!
Also new to my feeders are the Purple Finches. I so love to see the male’s bright plumage as they sit in the trees. Along with our American Goldfinches that are quickly losing their winter plumage and exchanging for that brilliant yellow we have come to love.
Please enjoy my photos below…there are quite a few this month!
