Today I did a drive around the area. No owls as I had hoped but saw a nice little mink as I pulled the car over. A couple of canada geese in a wetland and about 6 white tail deer in a field. I also saw my first migrant hawk,a broad wing. It was a long ways off but got a good enough look to ID it. Beautiful bird as it flew across the field into the trees. Birds are going in and out of nest boxes all over the place and singing their special songs. My favorite time of year. Now bring on the green grass and spring flowers.
