We spent some time yesterday searching through the field guide to find out what kind of bird has arrived that fills the top of the bois d'arc tree a couple of times a day now. They are such a pretty bird. We assume they are on their way back north and have stopped to visit and sip from the bird bath in the back yard. I had to sneak around the back door to get the photo and with my hand shaking a bit, it is a little grainy.
There is also a big flock of Robins that arrived several days ago and covered the front yard. They come up to the trees in back, but spend more time on the ground in the meadow. These are the first Robins we have seen since we moved here, so it pleases me that they are here.
