The past ten days or so have been extremely dreary. The clouds were socked in, and we got a lot of rain. The worst part was that it was cold too! But, finally the sun came out yesterday. It felt so good just to be outside; it didn’t matter what you were doing. With a forecast of another week of cloudy, rainy days, the sensible part of me won, and I spent the whole afternoon doing yard work. However, there were a few birds that were brave enough to stop by my backyard feeders even though I was invading their space.
I also took a few minutes to check on the nesting great horned owl. She was in her usual spot, however, I noticed that she was sitting a bit higher than she usually is. Could it be that she has some new owlets?
