Old Real Estate

I took down the robins nest from last summer. Now I'm waiting to see if they decide to set up housekeeping in the same spot this year. It's surprising how clean and well preserved the old nest is.

The First New Shoots Up

The Bleeding Heart is the first up again this year. Though it's in a raised bed on the north side of the house it probably gets some additional warmth from the basement wall. It won't be long before it's in full bloom.

Waiting for breakfast to be served

Napoleon is pretending he knows nothing about bird feeders. He is waiting quietly while I put seed out for (HA) the birds.

OK birds - back off, it's my time now

When Nappy lands on the feeder it's all his, except perhaps for a little chickadee he will share with.

LetsSee - what can I munch on next?

Still quite a bit of snow on the ground, but I heard a couple of Robins today for the first time this year. Otherwise it's a typical April day - chilly and wet. These photos were taken a couple of days ago when it was bright though cold.

I expect I will be seeing more of a few old friends of the raccoon persuation. There is a new skunk in the area. On the small side and quite distinctive as it's tail is totally black.

I'm Stuffed!

Yes, this is Napoleon.
