I woke this morning to cold air and cloudy skies, much more like November than April! For a brief moment, we even had hail!
But, I still wanted to head outside with the camera for a bit because we put out a new “feeder” last night. I had mentioned to my household hero that I would like a feeding trough that I could hang between two trees and before I knew it he had carved out a center strip from a section of pine tree that had fallen and hung it up. Presto! Perfect feeder!
Let’s just say I can already tell this is going to be a hit.
The Bluebirds were busy grabbing mealworms to take to their babies…
…and this Yellow-rumped Warbler (who is sporting his darker, “soon-ready-to-migrate” colors) was sampling some seed.
This cute little Titmouse was investigating the offerings (and later grabbed a peanut)…
…and this beautiful male Cardinal landed and lingered, which is something I’ve been waiting for!
I’ll head back out and see who else shows up when it feels like April again!
