What a fun walkies. Firstly, Maggie deer was about. She's still hanging in – with her broken leg. She's happy there is grass beginning to grow.
Daisy and I found another Barred Owl pellet. I've been hearing the Barred owl in the forest at night. It's not only eaten one of our black squirrels, but a fish, as well!
The frogs at the pond have been very busy, after a winter's hibernation. The spring peepers awoke the first week in April, the wood frogs were next just a few days ago, April 10th. The pond, by now, is about 3/4 thawed.
This is another harbinger of spring. I see them infrequently. Unlike nuthatches, they go UP the tree, headfirst. We were sitting on the dock, when I saw it fly and land on the dead elm tree.
