Spring is in the air! Kestrels return!

How great it was today to be able to open a screen door/window and let some fresh Spring air into the house and to hear the birds singing!

The kestrels have returned again this year - time will tell where they decide to nest. The old Elm tree in the above photo they used last year is looking pretty bad and wonder how long it will continue to stand. I was only able to capture the female kestrel today, the male was being quite elusive. I really enjoyed watching them last year and getting to see the whole family after the babies hatched. Story and photos are posted at my July 2008 blog post which you can find here.

Below I have posted an assortment of the birds we are seeing in the backyard at this time. (Not all species we are seeing are represented)

Take a moment to look around you and enjoy! :) Coppertop
