Oh, sure. It’s sunny now…

It was cold, dark, and rainy at “sunrise” this morning, so I waited a bit until it was only cold and dark, and then I went out to see who I could see.

The first to come a long were the mom and yearling white-tailed deer, and here’s mom acting again like she’s just sampling the vegetables.


We had a few surprise visitors on the river. The first is this blue-winged teal drake.


And this pair of hooded merganser hens was a second. There were also some tree swallows, but they stayed too far away for pictures today.


At the pond, I thought I saw a pair of eastern phoebes perched on branches over the water, but once I got a closer look and noticed how long their wings were, I realized that they were norther roughed-winged swallows instead.


Finally, the trio of goslings on the river and the quartet of goslings on the pond continue to do well, and here are a pair from the pond this morning looking just fine.


Since I came up a bit short with pictures this morning, here’s another look at the blue-gray gnatcatcher from yesterday.


Lastly, here’s another look at the red squirrel as it wonders if I’m being good and eating my vegatables, too.
