We took a walk down the driveway and back this morning, with a cup of coffee and tea in hand and the sun started peeking over the tops of the trees. You could just feel the earth waking up as the light seeked out the dark and warmed the night air. Birds were the topic this morning as we walked.. a pair of Eastern Bluebird has adopted the house in the garden, a pair of tree swallows have move into the new bird house I mounted to an old fence post earlier this spring, a pair of barn swallow are trying to convince me that it is ok to move into the shed and a Robin pair has chicks in the old barn. As we walked we were privledged to see a male Rosy Breasted Grosbeak for the first time this spring, Gold Finches by the ton, a female hummingbird, blackbirds, Eastern Kingbirds, Crows, ducks, geese and in the distance sing Sandhill cranes... This my favorite part of the day, as mother earth is waking up. I hope to share this part of the day often with Trish.
