Birds, bunnies and butterflies (and Steve)

The wildlife that surrounds us...

Baby bunny came to join me near the garden yesterday. She sat and watched me water and weed and didn't move one tiny little muscle - even when I came closer for a picture.

The mystery of Mrs. Bird is yet to be solved. I still don't think she's a robin, she's just too tiny (and doesn't have the tell tale brown/red chest). She's about 4-5 inches long and her mate has similar markings only a yellow head. Perhaps finches or wrens? We shall see when the wee ones hatch -- I have a perfect bird's eye view of the whole Bird family.

The local butterflies come in for a drink in the diminishing spring rain puddles.

Steve enjoys a well deserved pet

...after checking to make sure the pantry was free of mice.

Bears in the backyard

Just moments after rescuing a hummingbird, exhausted nearly to death trying to find her way out of our enclosed porch (pictures and story to follow shortly); we spotted our first bear. He was slowly combing the back yard, presumably looking for something tasty. I had only a few moments to discover it's presence and then run inside to grab the camera....

The garden and it's friends

After a little hard work our patch of dirt is finally a garden!
Thats sweet bell pepper, butternut squash and tomatoesparsley, cilantro, rosemary, sage, chives, mint and garlic
summer squash, cucumber, zucchini and potatoes.

And planted in other places around the house...
sweet peas
and apricot.

I've also discovered a new friend right outside the window.
Day one
Day two
Day three
and today (day four). Can you make out momma bird's eye and tail?

Things are happening out here in the Catskills, and I am lucky enough to document all the goings on.
