I am thinking that all of the rest and relaxation we have enjoyed this winter is finally catching up with me and I sometimes find myself up as daylight breaks. A few days ago I quietly tiptoed out the door, with camera in hand, hoping to find something to catch my eye.
I headed down to the canal as the sun was coming up over the water. Until recently I had not seen many birds, however as days get longer and temperatures have warmed, there has become more activity. I suppose, had I gotten my tail-feathers going earlier each day I may well have discovered the activity had always been here….and I was not !
Temperatures have been unseasonably warm this past week with many records being broken, and Bob and I had a few days of getting up close and personal with one another as the rains moved in. Boy howdy, does this coach get small!!!
Spring has arrived
There is love in the air
…. outnumbering the neighborhood dogs and cats, walking in pairs down the middle of the road
…even the pesky squirrels look good
I will let Judy, our bird lady of blog land, educate us as to what bird this is. All I know is that it was very curious about me and my camera …heck… this one didn’t have a mate, who knows maybe it was checking out my legs, wide body and big beak.
…and the temptation to pick a few oranges almost got the best of me as I strolled with the flock.
It was yet another good day in retirement. Life is good !
