Here’s Lookin At Me

I was walking out to my car at lunch the other day and noticed an American Robin perched on the hood at the base of the windshield. Since it was reluctant to fly away I figured it had been interacting with its reflection. As I got close to the passenger side I could tell how correct I was. The next day it looks like it found the drivers side mirror. So funny. I wish I could have seen it instead of just the aftermath pictured above.

Eastern Bluebirds Nesting

March 17th, 2011

I witnessed a male Eastern Bluebird chasing a Tufted Titmouse around in the trees near the nestbox today. A little while later I saw the female carrying nesting material into the nestbox. I was starting to get worried that we would not start out the spring with the sounds of baby Bluebirds calling out to mom and pop. I have been neglecting the feeders recently and made time today to get them all filled up before mowing the lawn.

Quick Update

March 3rd, 2011

We still have some Purple Finches coming to the feeders. I have not had much time to watch the birds recently, so I am not sure what other migrants are still hanging around. Also, I just discovered that the hummingbird videos had been down since I changed the name servers several months ago. That has been corrected and they are once again loading. Thank you for visiting, Jim.
