There is a lot of wildlife here on the Estate. I’ve had a busy spring monitoring incomers, outgoers, hangabouters, freeloaders and menacing lurkers. Elizabeth has caught a handful on camera, so we thought we’d show you some. She doesn’t photograph the half of it though….
Elizabeth says we can do more as she captures them on her new camera, but if she put them all up now, then you’d be scrolling forever….
She has a point.
Today we’ll show you some of the flappers we’ve seen this spring:
This Mourning Dove passed through in April.
Definitely a hanger-on… A Ruffed Grouse in the willow bush. It’s eating the Pussywillows!
White Throated Sparrow visiting our feeder. They stay here all summer.
This is a Harris Sparrow. He’s just here for a few days on his trip north.
We see a lot of these Chipping Sparrows at the feeders.
A Common Goldeneye enjoying the splashy water this Spring.
This baby Crow was waiting for its mom or dad to bring it a fat worm.
There was a heavy thunder shower, and mom and dad had better luck worm hunting afterward. They sure looked wet!
