Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

Several birds at the bird feeder. The new bird in the neighborhood is a large hawk. I’m not sure what type of hawk at this distance, but the small birds at the bird feeder appeared to be more cautious.

Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

Deer, lots of birds at the bird feeder, and the remains of the Rhododendron. There was a heavy thunderstorm last night that blew down the remaining section of the rhododendron bush. Last winter I lost the first half of the bush during a heavy snowstorm.

A pair of wary deer, various birds at the bird feeder, and adding worms to the composting tube in the Garden Tower.  It is finally warm enough to start planting seedlings in the Garden Tower.
