In New England just wait a minute and the weather will change from warm to cold and back again. We hardy New Englanders are used to this. We are ready for anything that nature throws at us. I think! Yikes!
We have had snow in April! That was on April Fool’s Day one year. We were all fooled by Mother Nature that year. This year in 2021 the weather began nice and warm in the 70’s for a couple of days then dropped to 50’s and 60’s with rain and windy weather. What’s next? Snow? Well, snow was predicted up in the White Mountains (aptly names) of New Hampshire this week. Glad I am not there.
I snapped some photos on a warmer day of all the sprouting that is going on in my yard and neighborhood for you to enjoy. Got to keep thinking spring!!!
Here are all our bird houses. A few of them are already being used with grass sticking out. The blue birds are preparing their nests for their young. How sweet!
These bird houses will house some baby birds soon adding to the growing bird population that inhabit our backyard. There is plenty of food being supplied by my husband, the bird man. He loves watching them (so do I) and feeding them. I leave that up to him. I usually am busy, like now, writing about them.
The blue bird feeder above was being used recently to begin a nesting place for some baby birds. My husband noticed some twigs and sticks inside it along with the worms he had provided for feed. I think the blue birds were enamored by the color blue of this feeder and thought it might be perfect for a nest. John quickly took out the sticks and twigs and added more worms. This would be a cute place to watch the baby birds but also a perfect place for another bird to eat them. Oh no!! I hope the bird parents got the clue not to use it.
I hope you enjoyed this post. I will keep you informed about the nesting going on and of any new arrivals to our feeders. We are expecting humming birds and Baltimore Oriole birds soon! Can’t wait. They are gorgeous and fascinating to watch. I am keeping my ears tuned to the distinctive sound of the Orioles. It’s almost like a screeching sound. They announce their arrival and are excited to see that we have the feeder ready.
One year they came before John could get the feeder ready. The Oriole let us know about that. He squawked like a duck and kept coming back until we had it there. We thought he was going to leave and not come back. But, I guess, this bird was evidently hungry and patient enough to return. Phew!
