Hardly time to raise our heads to look at the birds this week ….. it’s that time of the year again and the dandelions are rearing their hateful heads all over the lawns. now that we are not permitted to use efficient means of removal its a hands and knees job trying to grub them all out before they set seed. Hate, hate, hate.

We have had a good number of White-headed Sparrows through in recent weeks and some nice White-crowned also. The bird observatory up the road is reporting the first yellow-rumped warblers so we have hoipes that they will drop in for a drink at the pond very shortly.
