Well, I warned you. It’s nearly May, so that means migratory songbirds. Today I got to go out for a bit of birding, and Monday is my annual trip to Mount Auburn Cemetery, a famous birding spot. http://www.mountauburn.org/ , Soutwest winds called for between now & then. hope it brings the birds up…
This waxwing was among a flock of about 20 that stayed in my yard all day eating apple blossoms. If that means no apples, I can handle the program. I can buy apples, but I can’t buy the sight of waxwings – always one of my favorites. They are the first bird my mother & I ever ID’d from a guide, when I was about 10 or 12 years old… I still have her copy of Peterson’s.
I was watching a ruby-crowned kinglet when a large shadow ran over us; I looked up & found this osprey fishing (unsuccessfully)
Just so there’s some woodworking involved, here are a couple of spoons I finally finished not too long ago. Cherry. These are about 10-12″ long.
