IT JUST HAS TO BE SPRING! Yesterday and today we have been blessed with birds and water fowl in abundance!!  The Swan Couple came late afternoon yesterday and boldly came up to beg for food.  They posture the whole time with threats and the male makes gutteral sounds from his throat but they still beg for food.  Their webbed black feet are enormous and even have holes worn through in some places.

This morning brought the Bluebirds looking over the new house Bill made, Yellow Warblers, Chicadees and Flicker.  The yard was just a congested airway of landings and taking off.  They all love to look at the houses and eat the hanging suet and seeds.  Such a joy for us!

Love watching birds! I never knew how clumsy swans were on land until a couple of years ago- they are so graceful in the water.
