Seven or eight deer, all does, dashed across the trail in front of me today. I expected a buck to be chasing them, but none appeared as they melted into the trees on the other side of the trail. Spring is on the way, though, and today I saw new evidence: an Eastern towhee, a bird that does not winter here on the south shore of Lake Erie.This is the first one I have seen this season, although last week I ran into a binocular-carrying bird watcher who said she had seen one that day. Unfortunately, my picture of the towhee was a little out of focus, and I don’t like to post poor quality pictures, but here he is anyway.
For more pictures of the birds I saw today, visit my main blog. In recent months, I have been posting there on a fairly regular basis. If the natural world interests you, take a look.
