365 Nature – Day 28
In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Each day of the year I will post something here about nature. It may be any format, a photo, video, audio, sketch or entry from my nature journal. It could be a written piece. Each day I will connect to nature in some way and share it here by the end of that day. You can keep up-to-date by subscribing to the RSS feed or be notified by email. See all the 365 Nature posts.
I thought we were in for a day of rain when it started coming down last night. But despite the forecast, the rain passed by and the sun came out this morning. As soon as that transition happened the birds started singing. Straight away I heard the Bewick’s Wren up at the top of the tree singing again. We filled up the feeders and the front yard became a hive of activity as the crocus flowers started to open up. I checked on our Snowdrops and they are now fully blooming as well. The tulips which are also in the front yard have just started coming up through the ground.
In the recording below with several birds, if you listen closely you can hear the Anna’s Hummingbird’s wings humming right after it first calls.
