Day 6.115: Red finch, yellow finch, ...
As usual, once spring-proper gets underway (as opposed to the season I call 'thaw'), it progresses very rapidly. When I left for Germany two weeks ago there was precious little in the way of signs of life. When I returned, it was noticable that there were new leaf buds on the trees.
Now, there is enough new growth to attract these very colourful birds, some of the blossom trees are already going over and we've had three consecutive days of eating outside!
