Spring things

It’s full on, in-your-face spring here in Rhode Island, and so far, it’s been a great one for frogs, with all the water. My friend and I took a hike recently on one of our favorite trails, and it was even a bit too warm (in the 80s) for my taste.

My dog loves these little adventures…

…especially when there’s an opportunity to swim.

On a completely different topic, my neighbor has a lobster buoy attached to his mailbox, and about a year ago, a woodpecker excavated a very fine hole in it. Walking by it the other day, I noticed a chickadee head poking its out of the hole, and I saw the bird again this morning. I am hoping she’s nesting in there.

There are a couple of other interesting nests in our trees right now, and not all of them belong to birds. I’ll keep you posted.

      I saw a little head poking out of the hole the other day. I didn’t linger because I didn’t want to scare him/her.
