For those of us that love nature - that love being outside --- this is a great time of year. Each year at this time we get our "FOY" or "FOS" birds and nature observations.
I was happy to see some great birds - nothing unexpected but still some nice first of year (foy) birds.
I saw my first Eastern Phoebe flycatching and foraging in the savanna. Always an exciting FOY observation.
Eastern Bluebirds, Chickadees, WB Nuthatches, Tufted Titmice, Robins, Song Sparrows, Blue Jays, Dark eyed Juncos and Turkey Vulture were seen.
This past Saturday - I got my first butterfly for the year - An Eastern Comma. As of right now (2019), I think I'm the #1 E-butterflier in the province of Ontario!... But I'm sure my latitude is helping me out with this.
