In April, before we drained our pond, we had 3 real ducks land in it. I had to look up their name on google images. They are Common Mergansers.
In May we had some more visitors. This Quail sat on top of this birdhouse for the longest time calling out.
This turkey kept pacing our side fence and it seemed like it’s bird brain could not figure out how to get out of our backyard. Dear went on the deck and made some noise and it finally realized it could fly over the fence.
Finally caught a Tom Turkey fanning it’s tail feathers!
Colville claims the title of the Turkey Capital of the Pacific Northwest.
The Swallows continue to entertain us with their flying.
Our Spring clean up continues. We are working on getting the pond liner cut and removed. It’s a toilsome job especially because of the scum. Pond scum is a real thing.
We’ve been in the 70’s and there are predictions of soaring in the 80’s on the weekend!
Hope the merry month of May is going well in your corner.
