Here’s a few of the critters I’ve seen around the farm lately.
Hope you have had a very happy Earth Day!
The palm warblers are still here! I know they are only in Iowa during their migration, but I’m enjoying them.
I’m also enjoying watching the robin with her nest just inside the barnyard gate.
I’m not sure she’s quite as happy when I’m around, but she’s not too scolding.
I am sorry to say that the gosling is gone. They were taking good care of it, but it just disappeared. I assume a hawk got it. It’s hard to be a little bird, which is why they hatch so many. I had a pair of Canada geese in the pasture.
The orioles are back.
I’m not sure what this one is. Any guesses? [Edit: I’m going with Eastern Phoebe after help from my blogging friends]
The barn swallows are all over now.
There was also a little wren.
If you want to come back and join in Friday’s Hunt, I have the items for this week at the top of my sidebar.
