Spring eventually does get here.

Spring at Croton

Spring birds are everywhere doing their Spring Thing.  Plus, a few of the residents are back in action.

This orchard (corrected, thank you) oriole finally popped out from behind the leaves. Been waiting to get a picture of one.

Sparrows at feeder

Sparrows in my back yard having a conversation. It is most likely the same conversation they have every day at the feeder.

Spider and web

This guy has been working on this web for days. The spider uses my umbrella, herb pots and pergola posts as anchors. I usually destroy it when I gather my herbs or go down the deck steps.
