Picture Pause - Flora and Fauna

We had a herd of deer in our yard this morning and I was so excited, I totally forgot to get pics.  But they'll be back.  They're here most every dawn or dusk.  For now, though, I'll just share a couple other pics of the new flora and fauna we're seeing.

The above is one of our dogwood trees.

And that is a white-crested sparrow looking for food under the azaleas.  (The silly titmouse wasn't cooperating this morning.  Those things are friggin' everywhere here.)

Lastly, there's the nest a lovely Eastern Phoebe couple have built under our deck.  I can just barely see into the nest from above, and this morning there were four little white eggs.  =o)


  1. Beautiful. A robin built its nest outside our window, but we can't see inside. :-(

  2. Once they hatch, you won't need to see inside. They'll be poking their little heads out and peeping at you.

  3. Awww! Pretty. And so cool. I love having yard critters!

  4. Sounds like a wonderful place, B.E.! We love watching the birds and we can't wait until all the snow is gone and things start to bud and bloom. Enjoy!!
