NOW it’s spring!

The hummingbirds are back! We’ve had the feeder up for a few weeks, anticipating their return, and today the Rufous hummingbirds showed up.
Bird Web says this about them:
Rufous Hummingbirds are highly territorial, defending feeding territories not only while breeding but also during migration. Rufous Hummingbirds do not sing but make warning chips in response to perceived threats. Their wings make a whine much like the sound of a cicada.
If you live in Washington State, be sure to check out Bird Web for wonderful pictures, info & sound clips of all kind of local birds.

Gemini is learning how to use the pony drive-thru to get treats. Smart guy!

The hens are enjoying some yard time. The garden is off-limits again, since we’ll be planting onions & potatoes out soon. Kohlrabi, broccoli, chard, spinach & lettuce next.
