We had a skiff of snow last night and the robins were excited - skittering around, dashing in and out of the street for worms. Birds were singing, robins, eurasian collared doves, chickadees, and there was the occasional crowing of a ring necked pheasant. I took a little ride to the outskirts of town and
I was treated to two killdeer also searching for food.
They're hard to capture because they stand perfectly still and then take off like a shot. Such interesting birds, too. Like many birds they're quite camouflaged by their surroundings, which to me is amazing.
But the best part of my little photo shoot was hearing the song of the meadowlark. Around here that means spring!!!! Diane
