I saw the first Monarch caterpillar on one of my milkweed plants today!
Today is the start of the Great Backyard Bird Count. We counted over 100 birds this afternoon, including this close-up that I finally got of our neighborhood Loggerhead Shrike.
The oak trees in front of the house have been full of cedar waxwings for the last couple of mornings. There’s been a flock of robins hanging around, too. Some of both stopped in at my fountain for a drink…
Most of the waxwings stayed in the trees. There were so many!!
