Song Sparrow - Melospiza melodia

This little beauty was singing its heart out. Flitting out into the open, singing for a while, and then flying off into the brush again. I wonder if it has found a mate yet this year and if it has helped start a nest.

I suggest visiting MacaulayLibrary.org to hear this bird's voice.

There were all sorts of snails all over the pathway. They may have been drawn out because of the rain. They were sealed against the pavement. I'm not sure if it was intentional or because they had dried out in the heat of the day. If anyone knows, I'd love it if you shared.

I love seeing ladybugs in the spring. Beneficial insects bring me joy. It truly is spring when the flowers are out and the critters are crawling. :)

I hope you enjoy yourself, wherever you are and whatever you are doing. :)

Bird songs are something I have trouble identifying. There are sounds: hummingbirds, pigeons, towhees, hawks like that I identify. But songs, here I'll hear a new song that is cool and I'll look for the singer. More often than not, the loud, clear song is coming from a mockingbird. I think they're very pretty and they seem to put together four or five different songs in a string. But, it makes, for me, identifying bird songs complicated. We hope you're doing well. Good luck! :-))

It is complicated. I am still learning new songs and voices from the birds in my area. The easiest have been the species that visit my feeders. As long as you keep that curiosity when hearing a new song, I think you are bound to learn more of them. :)

Thank you for being so patient! We’re slowly catching up with our SP! Almost There!
