Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

In the morning, a Dark-eyed Junco looking for food. The sun came out for a bit in the late afternoon in time for the herd of deer to stop by and trim the grass. The grass has turned green and is growing fast. Unfortunately, one of the tires on my tractor is flat and I don’t know when I will be able to get it fixed…
