Picked up a few new bird sightings this week. Caught a Red Winged Blackbird at the house (been seeing them in CVNP since April but none near our house), caught some tree swallows at a park (again seen in April in CVNP), Great Blue Heron with geese and mallards Great Blue Heron in Canadian Geese Gaggle catbird (pictured above)out at CVNP today, and the youngest spotted a Northern Yellow-bellied Flicker this morning on the suet feeder.

Peek a boo

Yes I see you, and the doe that ate some flowers/weeds in the front yard (finally the dog barked at SOMETHING in the yard. She only had to be 15 feet from the front door for it to happen), the raccoon in my feeder, and the squad of squirrels and chipmunks (who are living under my deck).

Welcome to suburbia…
