Day 141 - 25th May 2017 - Chickadee, Trillium and Hairy Woodpecker

Went out on the deck while I was waiting for the kettle to boil as I usually do, listening to the morning sounds and checking out the weather. Heard a racket coming from one of the apple trees in the back and thought what kind of a bird is that? Then I woke up enough to realize it was a Gray Catbird, sure enough he came up and perched in the Honeysuckle Bush where I could see him and sang some more. Nice to see him back, will try for some photos later this morning. Rain on the way this afternoon and I'm off to town before lunch - pick up the Chase to Ace tickets and do a little research. Nice day on Wednesday, a little overcast at times, flies are bad now. Quiet in the hood these days, it's like pulling teeth to find Warblers, maybe they've just not worked their way back to the country yet. Got a new bonnet and pockets made for work, apron just needs to be hemmed by hand.
 Chickadee got the prize in the apple blossoms.

Trillium is in bloom now.
Hairy Woodpecker hanging out in the branches.

Enjoy your day!
