One of the perks of living in the woods is the fantastic array of migrating birds that we see here, especially the warblers that we get at this time of year. Like this Blackburnian Warbler. Usually we have to watch the treetops to spot them, but a great thing about a pond with moving water is that it draws the birds in closer, and it is a real treat to watch them drink or take a bath in our waterfall.

Other then spring I love when you never know what you'll find passing by. For you folks down south this little guy may not be a special treat but here in new England these are beyond a rarity. The story goes as a pet store truck got in an accident on route 95 and a couple of these parrots got loose well somehow these tropical birds have figured out a way to survive through our winters. they build huge nests over transformers and

anything else they find to keep warm but I love them all the same.
