Spring flowers

Some flowers are in bloom on the south east side of the house.

I was out for a 40 minute walk in late afternoon, the mice have most the bark off this spruce tree.
Any guesses on what kink of bird is in the photo? if it is any help, the photo was taken in the south. Mostly sunny with a high near 10 today. Getting ready to watch some curling this evening.


  1. Could it be a killdeer? cocoa

  2. Cocoa beat me to it, but my vote is also for a killdeer. see this Wikipedia page which also has a video of its defense display.
