Nature Notes/ May 13

Seen on nature walks last week

We had some glorious weather last week...followed by cold snow flurries and cold on Sunday. I'm hoping fruit trees and shrubs don't get hit with a nasty frost like they did last year!

Meanwhile, the outdoors has called us out to enjoy the season's abundance. The largest square: a song sparrow in between songs. He had been singing his little heart out and after this photo op he continued.

Moving clockwise: mourning cloak sunning itself. wild strawberries tempting bees, groundhog wondering what delicious crops the farmer was going to plant this year, trillium (Ontario's provincial flower) adorning a deciduous woods, and a yellow warbler sitting on a still leafless branch.

The song sparrow deserves the spotlight. Pretty bird and photo. I would love to see a yellow warbler someday.

Beautiful picture collage! I saw a whole lot of strawberry blossoms the other day too. I hope you don't get a killing frost like last year too. It was +2 here this morning - pretty close. Pam
