These cute little guys can be really destructive. Last year they chewed through the wires leading from the battery in the car, which, of course, we discovered only when we tried to start the car. They can chew the studs in a house. See how it chewed the little board it is standing on.
The Evening Grosbeak. And after it bit the dust.
People have been asking what caused the grosbeak to bite the dust....I think it hit the window. Then something took it apart, perhaps my old, old cat. She is too old to catch anything, but if it is there for the taking, she will have a treat.
The tamarack tree is the only needled tree that loses it needles in the fall and grows new “leaves” in the spring. This one hasn’t leafed out yet this year. The are glorious when they turn golden in the fall and the needles are soft in the spring.

We probably put a bit too much mulch on the flower bed last fall after we planted lots of bulbs. Today I saw what I thought at first was a piece of paper on the flowerbed, but it was a crocus in bloom, just sticking through the old leaves.
