Just as things were heating up…

We had to leave..

It was hard to get the pups out when it was cold.

They wanted to stay snuggled and warm in their beds..

With the warmer weather…the pups

wanted to be out more and more..…

Jack liked walks in the field…

Migration was in full swing..

The Indigo Bunting was one of the first to arrive at our feeders.

It also liked this area after I did some weed cutting.

I had the feeders set up and our viewing area was close by.

P1030929The Blue Grosbeak was the second migrant to our feeders..

It shared the seed tray with the other birds…unless it got too busy and then it was a bit more aggressive.

The next arrival was the Rose-breasted Grosbeak.

A few days later there were four males..

The females had not arrived yet…

P1030966

Sharing the tray feeder…

P1030981Blue Grosbeak and Indigo Bunting..

P1030987P1030998

The last day we were there a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak had arrived.. I noticed later in the day we had two females.

I knew there would be more…and then the warblers..

But..

P1030970

We had to leave…

See the empty spot where Homey was?..

I left the feeders stocked and Craigy had orders to keep them full.

Because..

We had to go..

Just when things were heating up….

That is such a beautiful yard, just charming, like a dream house. All the little things around, the gorgeous flowers and birds that stop by. I sure would love to live there! :)
