A few weeks ago a robin built its nest on my porchlight, under the awning. It's a safe, cozy spot, however, it is a high traffic area- someone is always coming in or out of the door. I took a peek into the nest and it is FULL of three growing babies. I'm glad to know the disruption of us using the door isn't having a negative effect on these cuties.
While walking this morning I happened upon this family of sandhill cranes. The adults were about 4 feet tall. It felt astonishing to see such large birds in the woods.
This chickadee was singing its heart out and I managed to get a photo during the few seconds it wasn't flitting from branch to branch.
There were lots of chipmunks too, they are so cute.
