Waiting for spring birds
Pollen-bearing catkins of the native North American shrub Salix discolor, otherwise known as Pussywillow.
Bird list for the week of March 26 to March 30, 2012:
Northern Mockingbird, Mimus polyglottos, the many-tongued mimic. Here sunning quietly on pavement in the early morning.
Did anybody notice what I was attempting with the bird names? Emphasize "attempting". Okay, it really only worked for the first few names of the first two groups...
