Sunny, 29*, no wind. Good morning!I have been working in my garden getting ready to plant.Columbine, maltice cross,butterfly bush,all showing up green.There are 5 mantis egg cases in my hummer garden.While I was pulling out old flower stalks, a morning cloak fluttered by.The robins are busy looking for nest material.Morning doves are back.The ring-billed gulls have been flying back and forth for several days.There is also a bunny hanging out in the back yard.I have put out grape jelly,the robins,sparrows,and finches are enjoying it for now.The orioles will be here soon.There are still skads of juncos. I have been listening for the trill of the chipping sparrows,like the orioles,I will probably hear them before I see them.There are several pairs of cardinals around here, so included a picture I took last week. Good birding and gardening!
