Rain Covered Pussywillow....


After a heavy night of rain I went out and took this photograph. As pussywillows develope they do attain a lot of color.

That looks like something we would see here as we have had a wet winter and spring. And cold too. It has affected the number and kinds of birds that stayed around and the hawk you saw and his cousins must have gone to warmer climes as I have not seen them here since January or February.

I have also had a Sharp-shinned Hawk here from time to time and have a lot of photos of them but none lately.

Since the hawks use my place as a kind of grocery store, their absence could mean they are tired of starling, mourning dove and finches.

Living in Maine, like you do, you might be interested in reading my newest blog about The Hamlet of Gordon, Ohio. It is how small hamlets used to be and this one still exists.
