What is going on in my world?
I am still self isolating, so my range is limited,
but there are visitors in my yard every day.

  3. Your photos are always so wonderful! I'm feeling a bit stir crazy after so many weeks avoiding people!

  4. Hello,

    I love your Mr & Mrs Rose-breasted Grosbeaks. Cute squirrel and a lovely butterfly. Beautiful photos. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!

  5. We have black squirrels here in Bellingham, Washington, mostly on the grassy grounds around the hospital. Back home in Powell River, BC, they are slowly moving into the area and are pushing out gray squirrels out. That's not a very good thing. I understand the black variety is more aggressing. - Margy

  6. Karen, Great bird photos! Have a wonderful week. Sylvia D.

  7. Great pictures! A lot better than mine!

  9. I’m so glad to see one of your black squirrels again. They are so darn cute ... I remember yours used to have names. Love the rose breasted grosbeak too . You have a great backyard. ... we are still being very careful also.
