My guest the last couple of days!

Thank sounds like fun, Joyce. Perhaps several such days could be planned during May.

Maybe it would be a good idea to spend some time on the lighthouse islands to catch any birds moving through them. The island funnels many of the birds that way.  There are usually warblers in the trees especially in the spring. We are having the stairs put down again very soon, in the next day or two.

Maybe the yellow throated warbler will go that way. The last few trees before the flight north over water is a place they all seem to stop and gather their strength. I want to do this and  take a folding chair and a lunch and if the weather permits.

Both nests are occupied, Susan.

Oh dear! Thanks for telling us, quick, get the feeder out!

We are back from Ohio. We were gone for two weeks. It is a month ahead there, warm and sunny with everything in bloom. But nice that we have not missed much here, the migrants are mostly still to come.

I need to get a new camera and that is going to be a nuisance. It is worth maybe $400. at this point and it will cost $1000 to fix it. So much for expensive throw -away cameras.

Saw a Flicker in the Moosehorn yesterday and this morning I have the first one of the Spring in my front yard, a male.
