We had the Spring Equinox four days ago but it seems Spring was a little shy about coming to the party...
If you'd like to watch the nest building, egg laying and sitting, egg hatching, chick raising and more then go to http://www.chesapeakeconservancy.org/Osprey-Cam and be prepared to get hooked on watching these wonderful birds.
I have cast an eye on the hummingbird migration map and see that they are on the way also. According to that map the first ones are spotted in my state any time within the next week. However in my back yard it is quite a few weeks more before I am seeing reliable visitors to my feeder. Gosh knows there is nothing at all in my garden right now to sustain them.
Last week I bought myself a new camera and started a six week photography class so I am looking forward to being able to post much better photographs of my natural habitat this summer.
