    Yes, indeed.

    I heard the wood frogs for the first time this year on Wednesday night, then on Thursday it snowed a little. It's probably still to cold tonight for them to be active but they should be feeling frisky when it hits 60F this weekend.

    It's been a long time since I got a new lifer. But I got one today. Visiting my parents about 35 minutes away. It was a very gray, cloudy day.

    Thanks. I have 137 bird species photographed and ID'd for where I typically am. Massachusetts and Maine. I don't know how many more are out there. My guess is a lot more. But finding something new has been less and less frequent.

    ETA, Wikipedia says 501 but 175 of them are considered rare or infrequent. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o..._Massachusetts

    We have a lot of wild turkeys around as I live next to about 150 acres of woods and forest. One turkey appears to have not found a mate this spring, at least so far. It hangs out mainly under the bird feeders in the next door neighbor's yard. But if wanders around. It has become pretty used to people. My kids and I end the day with a bit of Frisbee most days. This turkey just hangs around.

    Today it was sitting in my front yard about 15 feet from the front door.





    Usually the turkey isn't a problem. It was up on the neighbor's deck the other day trying to figure out if it could get onto the feeder. It tried and failed. two days ago I looked out and it was sitting on top of my wife's Toyota Sienna van. It flew down before I could get the camera.

    Today it was a bit of a pain. The back story is that when my house was build long before I purchased it the builder illegally buried some tree stumps in the yard and filled them over. Over the last couple years they have rotted and I have some large sink-holes by the side of the yard. I've been slowly filling them with fall leaves and grass clippings. Today the turkey made a mess of the leaves filling the hole. I guess looking for bugs.


    Switching gears, later today one of the cats managed to bring a young bunny in the cat flap. The cats have an enclosure that no large animals can get into and that they can't get out of but unfortunately small bunnies sometimes go in the fence and the cat got him. I got the bunny with a towel in the basement and managed to set it free. It had some scratches but I think it will be OK.


    I don't know if I have told this story before but I work at home. We have two cats and when a cat comes in the cat flap I hear a "Flap, Flap" for each cat. About 8 years ago I was on a call with a client and I heard "Flap, Flap, ... Flap, Flap....Flap, Flap. Three flaps? I have two cats. I got up and saw a bunny running across the carpet! It was full grown and it appears that the cats had cornered the bunny by the cat flap. It went in and was followed by the two cats. I quickly got off the phone and captured it when it went into the bathroom.
