A little behind on the
Potato. The ground has got to be over 40 degrees
Fahrenheit, and life proceeds, inch by inch, painful
step by painful step, and it's probably unnecessary to
repeat that the call of the Amorous Boy Cardinal can get
a little grating.
There is however
a House Sparrow who for the March and April of the last
couple of years has successfully conducted his affairs high
in the eaves of the barn. Can't say I miss his presence this
year, because his courtship perch is such that the barn acts
as a megaphone. And too, Boy Phoebe can be spotted flying
around with insects in their beaks, which is pretty
passionate behavior from a Boy Phoebe.
