Sometimes the things you are looking for are in you are right in your own backyard.
Most springs you will find us parked for the month of April at my sister Adele's and her husband Craig's home.
I set up the scope inside and took a few photos.
Now that it is warm I will set the scope up outside and do some digiscoping.
We are always excited to see the migrants come back.
Here's our Blue Grosbeak that arrived a few days ago.
We are expecting to see the Indigo buntings any day now. The Rose-breasted Grosbeak usually shows up after the Buntings.
The Brown thrashers are singing. The Carolina wrens are singing a bit too much for me….non stop over and over…sometimes..I just want to turn off its switch.
The feeder is always full with birds.
I love our little squeaky toy Brown-headed nuthatches…
The Chickadees are now nesting in the moon. I will take a video to show you their new home.
We also find wonderful birds in the yard that don't go to the feeders. Eastern Bluebirds, Vireos, Cedar waxwings, Blue-gray gnatcatchers', Kestrels', and others.
Birdie life is good here.
Yesterday, I looked across the street and saw some Tulip Poplars….they keep whispering to me….so before dinner, I walked over to to see what they had to say..…
Look what I found. I walked around for a half hour and found five beauties. Today I will search again.
Adele, an avid gardener, is always looking to see what is popping up out of the ground…what is blooming…and what plants didn't survive the winter.

Its fun walking around our Yard…wherever we are.
Sometimes we drive to a “special place”….when, really, the special place is right here in our own backyard.
Have a great day ….
Take time to smell the flowers…and look around in your own backyard for
