End of winter, or nearly the end
Largest square: Red-tailed hawk sitting atop a small tree. I have seen quite a few red tails this winter but this is the first one to graciously show it's gorgeous red tail and "eagle" eye without flying away. How they find yummy voles and moles even when the ground is covered in snow is beyond my comprehension!
1. Snow bunting eating weed and grass seeds at the roadside. In April males will return to the high Arctic, the females about a month later.
2. Horned lark, another bird that eats weed seeds at the side of roads this time of year
3. Female cardinal hiding amongst the branches of a red osier dogwood
4. Melting snow refreezing into icicles
5. Melting snow beneath wild grass and red osier dogwood
