I haven't seen bunnies in the yard since leaving Texas. I used to think maybe it was the same bunnies but if the bunny breeding reputation is true, probably not. Never did see baby bunnies. I did see lots of birds and kept putting out more feeders. They would empty four big multi bird feeders in a day. I learned through experience that when a feeder is hanging over grass there will be lots of things besides the lawn grass growing!

I would have enjoyed that and taken a pic to show ya! If I ever see snarly man threatening a crane I will kick him in his happy place.

I heard a lecture on hummingbirds at the Nashville Lawn and Garden show recently. He said that when hummers migrate, they use every bit of energy they have. They must find food fast. He said that many die inside of graveyards that have artificial/fake flowers. They will go on and on trying in a field of fake flowers then they will just drop and die.

Spring is close.
Today, I saw huge flights of Canada geese heading north, at fairly high altitudes.

I saw a flock of vultures weeks ago. I'd never seen so many at one time.

I saw an osprey weaving in an out among the cypress trees carrying a fish back to the nest most like for his mate sitting on eggs. Soon little ones will be seen with their heads just sticking up a bit. Now the best site of all was all the snow birds weaving from lane to lane trying to get home...
