Went for a long ride today. Came across a corn field with lots of swans scattered throughout the whole field. I’m guessing upwards of a hundred.   A couple miles from open water. Also saw one sandhill crane  and a few pheasants. All of the critters seem to be moving about.

Some snows & blues reported west of Bugtussle in a field on Hwy 30 yesterday afternoon. Were a lot of Canada geese in the air last nite at 10 & 4 a.m. when I had Poppy out to poop. Today there was even a good sized flock of specklebellies.

Feeders been kinda quiet,  just a few house finches , sparrows and a lone Junco was bouncing around a little bit ago. Ma and Pa ran out to Willma on Friday, west of Hutch aways the snow is really piled up, they lost count on the pheasants spotted.  Been seeing plenty of honkers here for a few weeks. Hopefully it won't be long and the Orioles will be back..

Yup boober, figure it'll be 5 - 6 weeks here and it'll be showtime for the orioles. Sky was full of geese on our way back from Mayberry this a.m. Sounds like spring out there too. Robins are setting up shop, the chickadees are singing fee-bee and the cardinals are singing as the geese make their way north honking away. Not counting my chickens before they hatch though. I trust this weather like a fart anymore.  :coffee:

Appears the rooster pheasants have dispersed & staked out their territory. Only seeing single birds passing thru the yard again so courting season is underway. Speaking of expensive, thistle seed is really nuts. Think it was $47 for a 20 lb. bag at FF the other day. Was debating about refilling the feeders ahead of the rain but think I'll wait and let them pull the feeders down close to empty. No reason to let it ruin several $'s worth of seed. They can get at sunflower seed in the feeders that are more weather proof. 

Add great blue herons to the list of birds tooling around out here.

Some of the male goldfinches are getting closer to their yellow summer plumage. Surprised they've been as faithful as they've been this winter & now into early spring. :scratch:
