One of a pair of California Wrens nesting somewhere near my yard (but not in it!)
I love these guys. I still vividly remember the first time I ever saw one, almost 20 years ago.
I like the light on this one.
I love the facial expression on this guy.
I just love everything about Carolina Wrens!
More spring flowers! These are in the exact same location as the crocuses were a few weeks ago!
I think the white one looks pretty decorated with raindrops.
The previous owner is responsible for the almost magical transformation from one type of flower to another.

Great Blues are back! These photos aren't great, but it was WAY too windy to manage a big lens.
The males are flying back and forth to get nesting materials to repair the used nests from last year.
I predict there will be far fewer Great Blues this year than last (and last year there were less than the year before) Does anybody remember why I have such a gloomy outlook about this?
The birds are constantly flying back and forth over route 9 near the Jefferson Apartments. Check it out!
A handsome male Ring-necked Duck on the Sudbury River in Framingham. Can you see the ring on his neck?
A slightly smaller Ring-necked Duck. This one didn't get the girl in the end. I noticed that he was more brown than light gray on his sides.
Here is the female Ring-necked Duck. She is very popular and very attractive in her own right. She has a ringed bill and a ringed neck if you really look hard.
The bigger Ring-necked male was swimming so strongly that he made a wake!
