A lovely female House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) sitting on a branch of the Rose of Sharon bush in the rain. I feel much better for the birds now the temperature is back above 0 and the ice is gone!
Another gloomy lightless rainy day. It didn’t seem to bother the birds, who were quite active at our feeders. A male House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) waits for a break in the action
What does a little bird think when it’s sitting wet and cold on the first day of it’s life when it’s rained! I think this little House Sparrows (Passer domesticus) expression says it all!
Here’s a Grey Grey Squirrel. We don’t see many of these guys anymore, as the Blacks are taking over the gene pool. This guy is soaking wet with the rain, but it doesn’t seem to bother him much. He has a good supply of seeds to keep his energy up!
Happy as a Duck…
…in water! A flock of Mallards are probably the only ones that are enjoying the flooded streams in and around Fort Langley. After lots of snow, we are back to our usual wet Spring. New growth is obvious on the background trees.
Dark-eyed Junco in the rain!
