I think, we are getting used to have cool mornings and warm afternoons! This new Spring mode might stick for a while. As long as we have warmth for the plants and birds I don’t mind.
I’ve just confirmed that the swallow that has been circling my house and trying to enter through my window, is nesting in my dryer’s vent again! The only difference is that it hasn’t pulled the veneer off, it has learned how to open and shut the darned thing!
Today, I’m dedicating this post to my “Sheriff”’s lady (My Mockingbird’s mate), she has been busy at her nest and she went out to take a hearty bath. Her joyful bath was obvious, she was elated and seemed so happy! Good for her!
Note: You must excuse the water being muddy, after all, that water is changed every couple of days and the bowl scrubbed clean. I must also say that it is shared by many birds which love to soak themselves and leave their mud and dirt behind.

More Green, More Flowers, More Birds!
Although the Spring is on now, it’s manifesting slowly. What I mean by this is: We have nights and morning on the cold side and then slowly warms up to a normal spring temperature. Or, sometimes , rains for a few hours and then warms up. It’s hard to predict what exactly the weather is going to be.
I’ve noticed more activity in my backyard lately. the amount of bird traffic is more than it was two weeks ago, however, It is less than it was in prior years. By measures of quantity of feed consumed , indicates and increase. It means that more birds are eating the seeds I provide them.
Most birds do not show at the same time it’s obvious, I can not see every bird that may show up therefore I can not take photos of all birds that show up during the day.
For today I have a gallery for you , despite the rain and the cloudy dark sky. I hope you will enjoy what I shot for you. The Northern Cardinals are not included (You wait for Saturday and you’ll see them as usual).
