…..I had begun to wonder if I was out there with a wee health issue that kept me slowed down. Well I went out there Thursday in the beautiful sunny warm air to go where no woman has gone, well at least when there was three feet of snow on the ground.
Spring has sprung, the grass ain’t rizzed so I wondered where the birdies izz. Our yard has been active with House Sparrows exploring new places to nest and clearing my feeders of seed, but I needed more.
We took the fifteen minute drive to Big Lake to see what activity was happening there. Canada Geese and plenty of them!
I watched this noisy pair fly in for a slippery landing
Wandering down the path a bit further, I found a couple of Pigeons soaking up the rays.
A few more geese….
……a coyote romping playfully through a grassy patch….
…..and then out on the ice.
I stopped to capture a few scenic shots
Spotted some Pussy Willows starting to pop open
And then watched a gull as he carefully prepared for take off
There wasn’t a great deal of activity yet as the spring thaw has just begun, but I’m sure it will only be a few short weeks before those melted ponds are alive with ducks and swans and everything else. I can’t wait!!!
