Birds Today, Spring is Finally Here

Or so it seems today. We just had 6″ of snow yesterday though. It will be 70° F tomorrow and the flowers in my garden will be happy again.

I wonder what these birds think about the weather. There are mating pairs at this location. Nest building is happening too.

The Great Blue Heron flew right above my head.

This Snowy Owl had a broken wing and has been rehabilitated. She has been in this spot for a week so far.

Both the Osprey and the Kingfisher were in the same tree. One at the top, the other at the bottom.

The Tree Swallow was one of many. I rarely ever see them sit still. I have not been out much lately due to the rainy, cold weather. I did shoot the Snowy Owl in the rain. Is weather hampering your birding?

  1. You got more snow than we did. It’s spring– If you don’t like the weather, wait ten minutes. Spectacular shots!

    That tree swallow is a very pretty bird. Surprised to hear you still have snow in spring! Although to be fair, our autumn down here was still feeling like a hot summer until last week.
