...it's a frog (a frog?)
No, you were right the first time: it's a bird.
And not just any bird - it's the bluebird of happiness. Yes, the bluebirds are back and they are lookin' to set up house. At this point, they are a bit skittish, so I was having a terrible time getting them to pose for photographs. I followed this pair all around my yard twice over the course of about half an hour and these are about the best shots I got. As the season progresses, though, and they settle in, photo ops will be easier.
In the meantime, if you haven't cleaned out your nest boxes yet, you'll want to do so. Unless, of course, the box already has a mossy nest inside, which will be the nursery of this happy little bird:
...who was also difficult to photograph, which is unusual for chickadees, but I blame the wind this time, which kept blowing not only the tree branches about, but also the birds. Yes, Virginia, it was a VERY windy day.
