We had light frost last night.It didn`t affect my peach tree,but it did the grape vines ,magnolia trees,& some other trees I can`t think of the name of.But there are still blooms about.
I`ve found 3 dead birds so far this year.First a robin,he looked fine,I just wonder if he turned the corner too fast between the shed & the wood pile,then I was heartbroken to see a hermit thrush dead at the goats old pen,he still had insects in his mouth.The brown thrashers were bullying the pair of thrushes,& it was the first pair of thrushes that I`ve had for awhile.I saw the other one in the woods collecting food.I wonder if they had already nested,what will become of the offspring if there`s only 1 to feed them?
Then there was the baby bird,apparently taken from the nest,it`s throat gashed.It was a formed bird,but not yet feathered.It may have been a bluejay.
I`ve been spending alot of time outdoors,so I`m bound to see & find such things.
We are still waiting on the medical center to call to set up an appt.for my husband.

Wow, frost in May? Is that usual for your area? I know that here in Boise we can have freezing temperatures through mid-May. That's too bad about the dead birds that you've found. I wonder what happened to the thrush? I saw the first hummingbird just the other day :-)
