Have you ever had an alarm clock that you can seem to reset or turn off..
We have an alarm clock ..for the past three days it has been going off at 5:30 and it cant be turned off…it goes off for at least ten minutes…and then stops..
Turn your volume up and listen to our Alarm clock..
Yep…we have been waking up at the crack of Whip-poor-will..
The birds sits on my sisters rooftop close to our bedroom window and sings its heart out…Guess it thinks we should be up..
We usually arrive in NC in April..this year we have arrived a month later..
Things are different now..
Its warmer, the birds I normally see are not around, my feeders are pretty much empty…Where are my Indigo buntings? Where are the Rose-breasted grosbeaks? I did see one Blue Grosbeak but it didn't come to the feeder..
The Eastern Bluebirds already have chicks…Last year, when we left they had just checked out the nest boxes.
We visited one of our favorite local birding spots..
Home of the Red-cockaded woodpecker, Brown-headed nuthatch and Bachman's sparrow..
We always see them when we visit..
Yesterday the local bird bander was there..she said that it has been slow..she is also wondering what's happening..Some of the birds have arrived later than usual..Some in less numbers..
Female Black throated Blue Warbler
Soooo..when the birding is slower than usual..there are always other beautiful things to see..
We did see and hear birds.
Prairie, Black and white, Prothonatary,Pine,Black-throated Blue Wablers, Northern Parula, Red-cockaded woodpecker, Bachmans and chipping sparrows. Brown headed nuthatch..Eastern Wood Pewee, Carolina Wren, Titmouse, Carolina Chickadee
And ..the entertaining…Pileated woodpecker
Parked at Sickstas and Ghetto Boys resort for a month...Lovely gardens,fish pond, swimming pool..two pups..
Life is Good
