The Rufous Hummingbird returned on April 29th. Year after year, their arrival time never varies, always at the end of April, just like clockwork.
On the same day, the garter snakes left their den and have been warming themselves in the sun ever since.
A Red-breasted Sapsucker found this fence post very interesting. This is the first time I've seen this species up close.
A Robin pair, recently arrived, were spotted gathering nesting material this morning.
