Look Who Came Over For Lunch

This Doe browsed her way past our back door at about 12:20PM this afternoon.  I looked up from my tablet and there she was.  I could not get a front on shot as long as I waited.  She was about four paces off our back deck.

Beautiful Doe

This pretty gal was outside our kitchen window this morning.  My wife, Jean was washing dishes, looked up, yelled Dan come with your camera there’s a Doe out here.  I grabbed my Samsung Tablet and took these images.

An update on our birds.

Well, it appears our Female Cardinal has abandoned her nest. We had a rain a few days ago and she has been nowhere to be seen since. The good news is a Catbird seems to be taking some interest in the abandoned nest.

In the front of our condo a Robin is building a nest right outside our kitchen window. She’s been very busy.

I’ll try and get some pictures as soon as it warms up a stops raining – somtime next week.

Here’s a look at how green things are becoming in our neighborhood.

A Bunny Rabbit

This is only the third rabbbit we’ve seen since we moved into our Condo in September.  Remember, our sliding glass back door goess onto a deck and then the woods.  “Five giant steps and we’re in the woods!” All of a sudden, this morning, there was the bunny.  When I first saw her she was just on the other side of the black fenching.  (Some clown tilted the fence on me just as I shot this.🤣)

Female Cardinal on her Nest

4-16-2020  Well, she’s on the nest for the second day in a row.  She disappeared for a day or so.  We had a littlet snow.  Tonight we could get three to five inches.  I don’t know if the eggs will make it.   Meanwhile, I don’t know where the male flew off to.  We haven’t seen him feeding her. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.

The Cardinal and her little Family


 

SHE’s in there!  It’s hard to shoot through glass at an angle. I’m afraid these images won’t break the bank.  Whatever!  Hopefully, I’ll be able to get outside and take some decent images before everyone is fone.

4-10-2020  In the past few days I’ve been amazed, along with my wife, Jean, watching a Female Cardinal, slowly but doggedly, build a nest for her coming youngsters.  The nest is being built not 15 feet from our sliding glass door – and on top of a low schrub.  She is very diligent in her efforts.  Placing little sticks and other materials ever so gently into place.  Then she’ll scoot about creating a rounded bottom where she’ll slide back and forth smoothing out a round egg laying spot for her and her coming brood. Meanwhile, her mate, the dashing Red Male, sits guarding the whole business about 20 to 30 feet away in a tree.  This entire labor continues on and off during the daylight hours.  When evening approaches the two of them disappear until the next day.  When I first look out in the morning – at first light, she’s usually on rhe nest.

4-11-2020  It’s another day and our female is on and off the nest.  No sign yet she’s started a family.  May be ro early?

4-12-2020 More to come!

Love My Walnuts

This litte fella found another walnut.  I don’t know why he’s got his ear’s back a little.

IT COULD GET TO NEAR 80 DEGREES IN CENTRAL ILLINOIS TODAY … ONLY TO DROP BACK IN THE 50’s TOMORROW.
