White Crowned Sparrow

White Crowned Sparrow
Leaving the feeder up longer into nesting season has drawn in a wider variety of birds than we normally see. This white crowned sparrow is at the southern edge of its breeding range.

Spring is 'springing'

The sandhill crane migration is going in earnest, now.  Several flights each day.  On my walk today, it was interesting to watch the main body circle high overhead while smaller flights caught  up and joined in.

No pictures.  They wouldn't show much more than dots against the sky anyway.

Midnight Drama



We have had barred owls hunting in our neighborhood lately.  The depressions in the snow indicate where some small rodent became lunch last night.

Note the wing marks in the snow (circled) on the left of the depressions.
