Life around The Pear tree

  As you can tell by the lack of grass we feed the birds and critters under the pear tree.  I would much rather see them then the grass anyway.  We get a wide variety of birds.  From a female oriole, the male wouldn't come down from the tree to a pair of cardinals, blackbirds and jays.  I think we get around 30 or more species throughout the year.  Plus finally flowers.

















The plum tree's blooms.  Will they be the last ones?







 I love the female cardinal with her bright orange beak.  She gets along well with the jay.















  So How many bunnies do you see?

You also have a male Eastern Towhee in the second picture, we have a pair of them here but I can never get a good closeup pic. Of course when I see one and grab my camera Patches tares off running through the doggie door and scares it away. I think I counted 3 bunnies. Your pictures are great. Thanks for sharing. Helen
