I know there hasn’t been much craftiness this week, but I just had to share these more recent wildlife experiences.
Saturday, while I was getting ready to head out to the school, I heard a crash in the livingroom. I came out from the bathroom to investigate and Dave said “Burton just ran into the back door.”
This was why
A little fledgling Robin had come to say hello.
Of course, that can be a dangerous thing to do when you’re a teeny tiny bird that can barely fly… but luckily, all the cats were inside and the robin parents were keeping a good watch on the little guy.
I took a break from my preparations and grabbed the camera. I was rewarded with the chance to witness their lunch break.
Later that afternoon, I was sitting on the couch after my outing and something caught my eye. I dumped my laptop off my lap and grabbed my camera…
A ruby-throated hummingbird! Looks like my feeder was a great buy! A few of my plants are supposed to attract hummingbirds, and I saw one last year, but I wasn’t sure if the feeder would make much difference! It was such a treat to see!
And last, but definitely not least… I had an oriole in the yard too! He didn’t stick around for pictures, but it’s the first time I’ve ever seen an oriole around here! I was so excited. Looks like I’m going to have to get an oriole feeder too!
