I’m enjoying the beauty and enjoyment of being in Porta MyYarda with the feathered lens friends. Some are year round visitors and some are returning for the warmer seasons.
April 8, 2020 is the earliest we have spotted the cedar waxwings in the garden. They are summer and fall visitors.
The white throated sparrows are returning birds for the summer and fall.
This dove, a year round resident, was sitting on the old table under the honeysuckle tree. It was a windy day and you can see how its feathers are getting ruffled. I use this table as part of my tea thyme display.
A pair of doves are enjoying the feeder by the honeysuckle vine.
The goldfinches, who are year round residents, are getting their summer colours.
The bluejays feathers aren’t as white as they are in the summer. You can’t miss hearing this noisy year round visitor to the garden.
We have also been seeing and flocks of geese fly overhead. The heron has also been spotted as it flies to the wetland not far away. I’m keeping my eyes out for the turkey vultures that circle the farm fields, haven’t spotted them yet, but they will be around soon.
We are lucky having a big backyard that is overlooked by farm fields. You don’t have to go a long way to enjoy the beauty of nature.
Have a look at more of our backyard beauties.
