On my last day in the North Carolina, the peach tree started to blossom. Spring looks like it's going to be beautiful there! I wish I was going to be there to see it. Not to be too sad though, instead I will be enjoying the beach and the birds back home in Florida. Yep, there's beauty everywhere!
That is an Eastern Phoebe I caught down by the river. Not too many birds down there, but there were some ducks on the river bank. I was trying to inch closer and they left in a rush as soon as they saw me. I waited for ages for them to return but they did not. I sure regret that I was leaving and didn't have another day to check back on that spot for them.
However, most of the bird action was up the mountain in the tree tops. I saw may of the resident birds: downy woodpeckers, blue jays, cardinals, bluebirds, chickadees, titmice, chipping sparrows, goldfinches, robins, towhees, wrens, and mockingbirds. We put out bird seed and it didn't take long (just a few hours!) for the chickadees and titmice to start visiting.
