There are lots of families returning to the area this year. Some of them reside in my back yard. The squirrel family lives right outside my kitchen window. The first brood of babies appeared out of the nest while I was in Serbia earlier this month, so I missed them. Ummm.. it looks like there will be more babies for me to see in a few weeks.
And, my hummingbirds are back!!! I'm still trying to follow this bird to the nest. I know it's around somewhere, because the favorite perch is never very far away. He lands here about every 5 minutes throughout the day. I took these through the living room window so they're not very clear. Looks like I'm going to need to hang out on the porch roof this summer. Funny, right after he left from the photo shoot, he went to buzz the squirrels pictured above. They must be close to the nest!
