These fellows are looking for her.



We also have a pair of hooded Mergansers that have been visiting and she has checked out the nesting box a time or two...I hope they stick around...Merganser chicks would be cool to see this summer.[:-thumbu][:-thumbu][:-thumbu]

I didn't know kangaroo's could do this: http://www.nwphotographers.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4424

I didn't take the pictures. I saw this posted elsewhere and thought it was interesting.

As you think, so will you be.

Even Mrs. Bluebird had a honey-do list for her male this weekend, here he cleans out residue from prior renters to a house on the corner of our garden...great weekend here for cleaning.







The 'pecking order' seems pretty constant over the whole spectrum of species.....[:-angel]

Came across this fellow on a recent walking trip in the Scottish Highlands.



He was happily sunning himself when he was almost trodden on - not by me I hasten to add. Unsurprisingly he wasn't very pleased.

Nice photo but to tell you the truth ... I hate snakes. Just pain scared of them. How far were you from the snake when you took the photo?

Peter,

I've never really had a problem with snakes, but I can understand why others do. On this occasion I was about 6-8 feet away from him, with a rock between us for good measure! No matter how quick he might have been, at that range I was gonna be quicker [:-bigeyes]

Still makes me feel very uneasy and uncomfortable. You're a braver man than me when it comes to snakes.

Now that spring has finally arrrived for good here in the middle of the U.S., the finches have returned to their bright yellow summer colors. And they're out in full force as well. I have 4 finch feeders around the yard at my lake home, and yesterday all 4 were loaded all day long with the little guys. The trees in the surrounding woods were filled with them as well. I estimated at one point in the afternoon that there were probably several hundred of them in the trees and fighting for perch space on the feeders. It was quite a sing-songy, chirrupy racket all day long. On top of it, they had emptied all 4 feeders by late afternoon, and I had to refill them this morning before leaving.

This particular feeder hangs from a tree limb that overhangs the water. There were birds on it from sunup to sundown yesterday.






Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm a busy man. I have a railroad to run.

Now I feel like spring has surely arrived. I really enjoyed the photographs of the finches.
