I got home from North Carolina last night but I have a lot more photos to go through. Here are a few more. Carolina Wren. There are cows across the street, they have 5 calves and are so adorable to watch! This is why I am a vegetarian. Carolina Chickadee.
Here are some photos from the Botanical Gardens of Asheville (at UNCA).
From what I'm heard, Asheville's main spot for birdwatching is Beaver Lake Bird Sanctuary. A very neat place for birds and other creatures (including lots of ginormous frogs), and there were many of Asheville's resident birds there, including a little nuthatch! (Sadly no photo of the nuthatch though. Flighty little thing.) This last one is a TERRIBLE photo, but this guy was so cool. A Northern Flicker.
Hello to Spring! I am on vacation in the North Carolina mountains, where they are just getting the first signs of Spring.
There is something about winter, where the leaves fall off the trees and suddenly you can pinpoint where the birds are when they are chirping! This is a thing that doesn't really happen in Florida, but in North Carolina it had me up every morning looking for birds in the trees! Just a few of the many song birds I saw... And who might have built this lovely nest?
