    Today I had just managed to finish mowing a section of the yard before the thunder storm came. I have a 150 foot driveway on a downward slope and when it rains so hard rivers come down and then off the drain I made away from the garage.

    So I got the mower into the garage and was standing there watching the rain come down and the rivers build up and saw a brown blob came riding down the river on the driveway. When it got close enough to make it out a stepped out to get it.

    A baby snapping turtle. It looks a little large to have hatched this spring. Today was the warmest day of the spring so far, up around 85 and humid. Perhaps it was looking for a new pond.

    After the rain we let it go in a nearby pond.

    This little bit of fluff was making quite a racket. Did he think the trash was some great find?

    I think that this is a red-wing blackbird chick

    I went to one of my old birding places that I had not visited for perhaps a year. It's best in the spring in the morning.

    I didn't get anything new or spectacular but in two hours out I don't think that I've ever chalked up so many species. Seventeen with three both male and female.

    List

    Brown Headed Cowbird
    Tree Swallow
    White breasted Nuthatch
    Blue Jay
    Goldfinch
    Red Tail Hawk
    Ruby Throated Hummingbird
    Chipping sparrow
    Mourning Dove
    American Robin
    Eastern Bluebird (male and female)
    Estern Phoebe
    Common Grackle (male and female)
    Song Sparrow
    Yellow warbler
    gray Catbird
    Red Wing blackbird (male and female)


    Brown headed Catbird


    Chipping sparrow


    Ruby Throated Hummingbird


    Red Tail Hawk


    Goldfinch


    Blue jay


    Nuthatch

    Today a Northern Flicker on the driveway. Flickers are woodpeckers that don't behave like woodpeckers. They scrounge for bugs on the ground mostly. They have almost exactly the same build as a red-bellied woodpecker but the colors and behaviors are totally different.


    And an Eastern Kingbird in a tree down at the pond.

    We got rid of a leaking wading pool in the back ward and under it, over the tarp was a ring neck snake. The are nocturnal and this is the first time I have seen one much less photographed.
