Spring is trying hard ... all different sizes and species of birds are coming through, flowers are breaking ground and starting their journey, but the nights are still very cold so it isn't easy for any of them.
This flock is a group of male Red Wing Blackbirds ... they swoop in, ravage the feeders and swoop out. Soon the females will arrive and they will break up into pairs. Then they will swoop in together and swoop back out :)
A group of male Common Mergansers fly across the lake. soon they will show up with females and chase the poor little girls everywhere. No rest for the weary ...
Most of the Pelicans have done their circling up to the thermals and headed north.
But we do still see a few around on occasion ...
There is more to come as it is just beginning. Everything seems to be coming to life ... it is a wonderful time of year. Happy Spring to the Northern Hemisphere and Happy Fall to the Aussies and their neighbors :)
