Angie and I just got back from a week down in the Cape May, New Jersey area. What a week we had! And a blog is coming about that in the not too far off future.
Today, is our first full day back at home, and we opted for a day of mostly rest (and a bit of house cleaning). We tried to enjoy the backyard when it wasn't cloudy or drizzly but those moments were far and few between. For me, I was really hoping for something new to visit the backyard today. It seems over the last few days, friends about the city have been enjoying Indigo Buntings, Scarlet Tanagers, or Warblers making appearances to their feeders. The cool wet days are keeping migrating birds in Toronto at the moment... so it seems.
Well, nothing was going on in our yard in way of new. A dozen regular visiting species plus the return of a Hairy Woodpecker (not seen one here since last fall).
But right before dinner, having my 20th something look out the kitchen window in the last couple hours, and this caught my eye.
