The last week has been a whirlwind of craziness. For some unknown reason, walking became almost impossible for several days last week. Tests came back undetermined and almost as quickly as the problem came on, it left. I got out for a bit this afternoon however walking is still a bit stiff but I figure the best thing is to keep moving.
The birds are really coming in now which makes for great fun. One of my favorites, the Great Crested Flycatcher has been hanging around the yard over the last week. It is very receptive to responding to imitations of its call.
The Blue Grosbeaks are in adding another blue to the landscape. Good to have them back.
Nest building is in high gear. This female Common Yellowthroat brought in many a piece of small grass building her nest. The Cowbirds are busy too scoping out and watching who is building what.
As I was quietly walking down the path, a fox walked out of the wooded area. We both stopped looking at each other. Always a thrill to have a close encounter.
