Today the weather was not great (I really hope May is an improvement over this dreary April) but it was getting even worse, so I decided I had better get out anyway. So off I went, to the pond! I looked and looked for the black crowned night herons, but I couldn't find them. Maybe they are just really good hiders, and they defeated me.
From there I decided to just continue on, and headed up. The red-headed woodpecker did not say hello. He probably was comfy cozy indoors, with more sense than I had! Near the oven a towhee flew in front of me, perched as gorgeous as can be, and flew off as I raised the camera.
