An exciting adventure looking at the land and the people around me.

The blooms on trees seem to have opened overnight. It is a parade of color all around me. My yard is filling with tulip blooms. I had a lady stop and tell me how nice they looked, I guess I should have been quicker on the draw and offered the complete tour. LOL The Eastern Towhee(pictured below) comes through each day so I have tried to imitate his call. He doesn't care, I think he is looking for a more feminine response. The huge flocks have all disappeared, a few have lingered on a few lakes. I have enjoyed watching birds gathering nesting materials. I have Bluebirds nesting at a house that is easy to watch, and sure to see some eggs this week. They are such a pretty bird and I can see why they are described as bringing happiness to all. This Red-bellied Woodpecker in the picture above has been tapping out a new cavity nest at the back of my property. He seems shy except when eating some sunflower seed at my feeders.

This robin likes the right mix of mud and leaves along the pond where I was fishing.
This Northern Flicker has been very allusive when I try for a shot.
