Isolation has me deeply missing my regular birding haunts. On the other hand, we're lucky to have a phenomenal, rich birding area all around us in our neighborhood! I've been trying to make the most of it, deepening my knowledge of and connection to this little stretch of valley.
Here are a few fun captures from my yard, and my next-door neighbor's birdhouse which has gifted us with the presence of a complement of tree swallows this year. There's always something going on if we remember to look.
