The sparkling waves were enticing me this week with thoughts of kayaking, but a little snow quickly shelved those plans for another week.

The emotions were flying high this week with the birds experiencing spring fever

and it’s so wonderful when a female has a chance to choose from a few colorful characters. 

There was spring romance everywhere, although for some the courtship was moving slowly.  At first, all of the attempts from this handsome fellow to attract the females were going completely unnoticed by the twenty females surrounding him.

 Finally at just about the time that Tom Petty’s lyrics to Here Comes My Girl began playing in my head, he finally found his girl.

There was time for some spring cleaning during the week after the celebration of the Michigan State Spartans great win against Duke to advance to the Final Four this weekend

and watching Bryce Harper’s exciting beginning with the Philadelphia Phillies and a fantastic return to Washington to play against his old team.  I must have been experiencing my own spring fever from all the Harper excitement, because for some reason I thought it was the perfect week to finally open the windows while cleaning and enjoy the cold spring breeze that had been blowing the snow off the trees, while someone else wondered why we had frost on the lamps.

  1. A colourful collection of characters here! I think my favourite has to be the deer and the squirrel shot, although it’s the least spring like.
    Maybe you’ll get the kayak on the water this weekend? Won’t be happening here – heavy rain and high winds…
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you!🙂 I would definitely have preferred kayaking over the snowy day, but I can’t complain too much since all the neighborhood wildlife love to visit and have a party in the backyard on snow days. Of course, I can’t go kayaking tomorrow and the weather is going to be perfect. Enjoy your weekend!🙂


  2. Loved this post, ACI, and the glimpses of both winter and spring that you’re experiencing in this shoulder season. Chuckled at “frost on the lamps.” Loved seeing the sparkling waves, yet frigidity, of the water. Fantastic wood duck photo, and the nesting herons. Super duper kudos on the turkey photos. You captured that male in his finest tuxedo and it is magnificent. I hope your weekend is great fun.

    1. Thank you!🙂 I love watching the birds this time of year and this year they have been more entertaining than ever. I hope I have another chance soon to watch the herons and wood ducks. It took a while to adjust to a turkey farm in my backyard this winter, but they have been very interesting to watch. I loved watching the male put on a show, but I do hope they plan on raising their family elsewhere.😁 Enjoy your weekend!🙂
