I looked out the back door to see if it was snowing yet. I was reminded of Nan and Pop telling me when they saw robins when I saw four of them hopping around the tree stump.
Recently we’ve been hearing a bald eagle in the evening. Earlier in the summer I thought I heard one but never did see it. We’ve been hearing it on our evening walks daily now but haven’t been able to spot it. I also hear it in the mornings and same deal. Never looking in the right spot at the right time. We were in the car this morning ready to go out caching when it finally landed on top of one of the Amtrak power poles.
While we were out for our walk, we noticed there were some chalk drawings on the sidewalk. We noticed this pretty cool one. I guess it was from the car show.
It’s always nice to see wildlife on our patio. First I saw a robin hopping around. Shortly after the robin flew off, I saw a squirrel out there.
A Mourning Dove On Our Hanging PlantHere is a photo of a mourning dove that was sitting on our old hanging plant right at the door. I walked into the garage while I was eating a hard boiled egg and heard a dove calling much more loudly than normal. You normally can barely hear them inside unless they’re close by but this one sounded like it was right there.
I noticed a bird was flying back and forth between the tree and our dormant milkweed plant. It was pecking at and pulling fibers from the dead milkweed and flying off with them.
We’ve been meaning to get back to the Conewago falls area when the river was low. We finally made it there today.
I looked in the backyard and saw robins pecking in the snow. It reminded me a lot of Nan and Pop, who were always thrilled to see them in the spring.
