We've been having a really bizarre spring here in southwestern Ontario. A month ago we were having unseasonably warm "patio" weather and today we were back to cold, damp weather with a risk of snow. Sheesh!
So, I've been looking for other touches of spring. Tonight we had a sweet little male American Goldfinch flitting back and forth to our feeders. The soft focus is a result of low light and shooting through the screen on the dining room window.
Yesterday our buddy Adrian Monk, the chipmunk, was stuffing his fat face underneath the feeders.
And for those of you who have followed the story of our nesting Mourning Doves over the past few years (see Mourning Dove History on the side bar), they are back but not on our window sill - they've moved to our neighbour's window. We live in the middle of a tri-plex and the window sills look pretty much identical so they're happy either way. Who knows, maybe they'll move back when I put our hanging planters up. Here's Momma dove keeping the nest warm.
