If this doesn't turn out right... Sorry! This is my first time trying to start a new thread! Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers!
April is well on it's way, so I thought we should start a new thread. Let's leave March behind...

I'll get things started! The birds are looking for food after our 4" snowfall yesterday!

Beautiful photos everyone!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I've been working outside lately, trying to get a few things planted around the yard so I haven't taken the time for photos but the hummingbirds have been around for the past week and I finally picked up the camera to see if I could get some pictures.

Hawks are around again and I also managed a clear shot of one this morning. They seem to like to perch on the dead branch at the top of a neighbors pine tree:

Silly wing flapping ducks. I wonder why ducks do that? Anyone know?

I posted more or less the same question last month and got the following reply

joannakat said:
@marsrover, I was wondering the same thing! And we're not alone. Here's a very text-heavy description of some duck behavior you may find interesting:
https://web.stanford.edu/group...
I found what they wrote about the wing flapping to be rather funny considering that I was looking for answers


Whatever the reason, it is neat to watch. It's when they beat the water with their wings or do somersaults in the water that I am really puzzled!

Little Red Capped Sparrow, or is it Chipping Sparrow? The start of the returning birds for us! The Turkey Vultures have been back for a while, but I haven't been able to get a good picture.
