The finches have been active. The female are hard to ID without their mates nearby! You'll notice how dark it is. It's been a bit dull, with flooding and lots of rain. We are high and dry atop a hill in the wetland. Ozzie Love, who chose the land and built the house where he wanted to retire, made a good choice!
May arrives and the rose-breasted grosbeak arrived, as well.
Meanwhile, on the frog pond
You'll notice the female wood duck has a limp. She's happily going after the cracked corn, though.
Watch the male preventing the other males from getting near his partner!
