Good morning to everyone! I hope your day is off to a great start. I was watching the sun set last night and after the sun had disappeared some clouds came along and filled the horizon. They looked like large gray mountains against the pale blue sky. Didn’t stay that way long though and they leveled out to look more like clouds once again. The evenings are so much longer now since the time change, really makes the day feel different. But I like those long evenings, especially as we get into summer and daylight lingers well after 10pm. And of course it’s daylight by 4 am which is even nicer for guys like me. I’m a morning person, which of course you already knew. So I enjoy getting up early in the summer, going out on the deck with my coffee and listening to the morning chorus of birds. So nice indeed.
And as I mentioned, more birds for us to look at today…
Here we have both the male (yellow) and female evening grosbeak. I showed the male a short time ago but wanted to show the 2 of them together.
And here is the male purple finch, which we have around now, but they get a brighter red once spring fully arrives. Even their beak often takes on a more pinkish color. Tomorrow I think we will be back with some more bright flowers once again. I hope you have a very enjoyable day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
