Jeepers Peepers

Blue angel: found on my bike ride

Maya peddling her police car ala Fred Flintstone on our brick paths

Another mailbox for my files

Took a long walk to the local wildlife sanctuary

Decided to make a collage of last week's bird visitors
We had Maya shortly after we awoke as it was a busy day for her mama. Fortunately it was beautiful out; much easier to entertain her outside than inside. After riding around our paths and driveways in her Little Tykes vehicle, we went for a long walk (2.5 miles) down the woodsy, deserted roads near here. In the wetlands, the peepers are still trilling. I wanted her to hear them. She wanted to see these frogs but that is close to impossible. When the bigger frogs begin their spring songs, we will have a better chance, Being very still, we could hear various birds too: the wood peckers, chickadees, and the red winged blackbirds. She wanted to see deer (though there are 3 carcasses in various states of
decay) but I only see them about 30% of the time.

Her bus picks her up for her afternoon school session near the old house. I spent an unhappy hour gathering things and throwing things away before returning for my bike ride. The wind has picked up quite a bit. I started into the wind but it was very fun coming back.

Another very busy day for you.
Love your birds - and the blue angel is quite a sight. Is it as large as it appears?
