AND--it was 32 degrees with a cold wind blowing. The little bit of snow melted quickly --but the temperatures stayed in the low to mid 30's all day long... Needless to say, we had a roaring fire going in our fireplace!!!!
But, even with all of the dreariness, some good came from the weekend. First of all, we saw more deer together than we have EVER seen. They were on the golf course fairway in back of our house... There were 12 of them total.... I immediately got my long lens and took some pictures... They were spread out --so I never got all 12 in a picture.. BUT you will get the idea... Above and below are some pictures of the deer---and below that, I'll show you my next surprise!!!
UPDATE: He is a male PINE WARBLER. Thanks EILEEN.
UPDATE: She is a PINE WARBLER... That is another 'lifer' for me.
*NOTE: There are two Yellow-Rumped Warblers. The Myrtle Warblers are in the east and the Audubon Warblers are in the western part of the USA.
SO---can you imagine how excited I was to see these new visitors yesterday??? It was a good day --despite the weather ---for birding and for seeing the deer.
Hope your weekend was a good one!!!!
