Red-Tailed Hawk Live Cam

"A Red-tailed Hawk pair has been nesting on a light pole 80 feet above Cornell University’s athletic fields on Tower Road for at least the past four years. In 2012, we installed a camera to get a better look at these majestic birds as they raise their young amid the bustle of a busy campus. So far, we’ve seen the birds bringing prey such as voles, squirrels, and pigeons to the nest."

Spring is Here!?

The nasty wind has finally stopped
We received some rain
The sun has been shining
And now we are blooming!

Lady Banks Rose in full bloom :)

The Honeysuckle is just starting to send out their intoxicating blooms

Mom's Weeping Peach always cheers me up with is pretty pink puffs

And then their are the Lilacs!!!!

Their scent wafts through the garden

I cut some for a bouquet and their perfume filled the house on Easter

I think Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep amongst the Alyssum

Truly love Forget-me-nots.
They reseed themselves all over and cover any bare ground during Easter time.

I'm joining:

Tootsie Time 
for Fertilizer Friday!

Etsy Cottage Style
for a Cottage Garden Party!

Hummingbird Cam and update on Herons

"Phoebe" is a Channel Island Allen hummingbird
in Orange County, California.

She has been laying 4 to 5 clutches each year for several years

I was able to see her feed the babies this morning ...so cool.
Afterward you could see the babies stick out their proboscis as if they were licking their "lips"

Update on the Great Blue Herons:

The nest was attacked by Great Horned Owls on
two consecutive nights, April 8 and 9.
