The Gardener's Diary Archive: Busy Skies, April 17, 2016

The Eastern bluebirds are back! A bit late; last year I first noted one March 27, then again April 7. That vivid blue back is a joy to behold; I am hoping they will next again in the oak outside my window.

Right after I saw the bluebird in the driveway a new visitor: the Carolina Chickadee:

"Welcome," I whispered, as it pulled a worm out of the leaf mulch I put down on the beds around the house last fall.

It's the 34th species to visit this little half-acre since August, 2014.
