Things are hopping

The lilacs are in full blossom!

For those who like action! S/he checked out the shed, then went on its way.

Daisy rests under the day lily and bleeding hearts.

Red-eyed vireo in the trees. Look up, look way up! Their song sounds like a conversation:
"How are you? I am fine. Where to now?"  This one I found a few years ago. Fun to see the red eyes.

A cat was with me on this forest trip. You can hear him on the video. I think it was Hooper. They get upset when I stop to watch the birds! "Let's go! Let's go!"

In the meantime, Hooper has a friend in the back yard.

I wonder if the raccoon knew you were there.

It's critter season for sure. My pair of chipmunks are very busy coming up and down the cliff to get their share of the dropped bird seed. And then yesterday I saw a bird of a different feather, or should I say fur. I heard something and went to the glass door and there was a bear at the top of the bridge to shore with his nose in the seed feeder on the side of the shed. I held and waved my arms but was surprised he wasn't more afraid. He hid behind the shed for a bit and then slowly climbed the cliff and disappeared into the bush where I could him rattling around for quite a bit. The good news is we haven't seen him since. One sighting is okay. A frequent visitor is not. - Margy

Lovely video,and Hooper there? What a variety of wildlife, and so spring-looking. Not long till your longest or our shortest day!!!Where did that term come from, as every day still has the regulated 24 hours. Maybe the term " Shortest sunlight hours day" was just too long.
