I’m enjoying watching the robin and her little ones.
It’s a full time job for her to feed them.
They are already really getting big. I can see four of them now.
I was really pleasantly surprised when I was walking in pasture the other night. It really looks like summer.
Then I heard a bird singing a beautiful song. When I got close enough to see what it was, it was the male bobolink in his breeding finery. I was very happy to see him. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve seen one out there.
Just for fun, I’m sharing one of the young squirrels that has sudden decided to take up residence in my yard.

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.

There have been lots of geese flying north this past week. I had a pair go directly over me when I was out in pasture.
They always look like torpedoes when they are in flight. At least I think so. Just a few minutes after the pair flew over, an entire flock came flying by.
They looked like Canada geese. They sounded like Canada geese. Then I looked more closely at the images.
I’ve never seen that white belly and under wings. Have you? Are they Canada geese or some other variety?
I hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt this week. The items are listed at the top of my side bar.
