Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade - my 70th and taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

Local Birds

 First, this robin perched in a lilac bush outside our sliding glass door.  Looks like it's making eye contact with the camera.  Robins are plentiful now.  Unlike in Maryland where they winter over in flocks now, robins come to New Hampshire when spring temperatures have risen.  

Turkeys are plentiful all the time.  I think it may even be turkey hunting season.

We saw this flock crossing the field and the tom turkey had its feathers in full array.  Wouldn't you know that when I got the camera out, it had put them away.

I am surprised that we haven't had any visit our yard yet.  They seem to love that field and the woods across from it.

We had two young mourning doves cooing and kissing on the garage roof. I only had the phone handy, I'll hva eto check the pics and see if they are at all usable for a post tomorrow.

...I find it difficult to get pictures of turkeys!

We too are blessed with turkeys. I love seeing them and am always reminded that they are descended from dinosaurs.

No turkeys here, but lots of robins. Happily, we've got a great spring day today.

Interesting to see what local wildlife you have around your property.
