Spring has Sprung FINALLY!

FINALLY ! I do believe Spring has come to Maine. Our fields are pretty bare with only patches of snow, but the woods still have a good amount. Water puddles are popping up everywhere. this Common Snipe paid us a short visit the other day. I had never seen one before and keep looking, hoping it might return. It sure blends in with the background! You can read more about the Common Snipe here.
In the photo above you can see the comparision of size between the Snipe and Robins. The Robins have been back for a week now and are really feasting in the fields.

Robins in the field as well as the deer! We won't be seeing them much longer, they are starting to change their habits and will be retreating to their summer areas soon. Oh, they might pop by every now and then but certainly not on a regular bases like they have this Spring.

Cutey! This little one appears to be hiding behind Mommy. Young deer are just like kids. I watched one play for a good fifteen minutes the other day. It would jump high in the air and take off on a dead run, only to go a few feet, turn and do it again. Back and forth it bounced, disappearing into the woods for a second and right back again. What a character! They all seem to have their own little personality just like humans!

It was such a beautiful day today, all I could think of was a cook-out! Soon for sure!

Enjoy :) Coppertop
