Lots of birds
Yesterday, it was windy here, but apparently stormy in Whitehorse. Tonight that strong wind arrived here. My yard is quite sheltered, because of the surrounding tall trees. I wonder if that has to do with all these birds visiting me.
Also many more Juncos now.
Yesterday i scared the above Yellow-rumped Warbler, out of the outhouse. A small group arrived, and they are still here this morning. I guess the insects attract them to that particular spot. Flies etc. have been zooming since i got back. And since two weeks there is the big, slow mosquitoes (who don't sting me).
And besides the Robin singing away, who was screaming this morning?
The flickers! 3 of them. They seem to always come in three. They hang around last years nest site, scream, two fly or really sweep in great speed with the wind after each other, they join no.3, to scream again.
This wind always makes me happy and maybe reckless. I want to be like the flickers now :) In marriage (two) why not introduce a new lover every spring, just for fun and games. Alexander always says three is the strongest unit. (actually he refers to our existing family of 3)
What do you think?
