The Blind at Bloomfield Ridge -Comes down tomorrow

Posted on April 14, 2017 at 7:00pm 1 Comment

So I have some pics from the last days of March at the Blind, sadly things will change as my Landlord is choosing to cut down all the Hawthornes and burn the brush piles.  He has 2 brush piles of hawthorne already cut which the birds have used as a source of cover over the winter, and now they are going to be burnt.  I understand burning before the fire season but what I don't understand is why, he doesn't use the area where the hawthorne is growing, it's on an old fence row to an old field…

I haven't seen a Chipping Sparrow yet this year...lots of America Tree though.

I had some Evening Grosbeaks in my yard today for the first time in a couple of years....they must have followed me from your place! lol. But seriously, I believe I've seen more of them in the last 5 months then what I've seen over the past 5 years...maybe they're making a come back or I've just be in the right spot at the right time.
