I've been doing a bit of backyard (and front yard!) bird watching these days and thought you might like an update! The big news is that Wrennie the wren, whom you may have met before here, has returned! Like the chickadees, the wrens work in concert with one another -- and that concert also includes beautiful trills. Here is one of the two wrens, atop the pole.
And here is the other! No sign of babies yet.
Ms. Chickadee keeps a steady path into and out of her house, often with some food in her mouth. But I'm not hearing bird sounds from within.
Meanwhile, Mr. Chick is always present, too.
Other notables in the yard include Rocky Robin...
...and Bobby Cardinal (who often travels with Mrs. Bobby C. as well.)
So, here's a question for many of my bird friends -- do birds tend to pair and stick together? I've certainly noticed it with the geese but seeing at least three of my yard birds hanging together makes me wonder. If so, well done, birds!
I leave you with a couple views from my neighbor Rosie's beautiful garden!
She's gracious about allowing me to clip some lilacs for the house -- and they smelled fabulous!
Is anyone else stunned that it is almost June?
