May 21 to June 3
This beautiful Ring-necked Pheasant was in a neighboring field when we returned to our house following Jared and Chelsey’s wedding.
The next morning – on the way to Sunday school – there was a Trumpeter Swan in the field across from us.
I am not sure that I ever saw one by itself, but when I looked at these pictures I think it may have an injured wing.
Notice the drop of its left wing.
The next day I enjoyed watching this European Starling taking a morning bath.
One morning while enjoying the beauty of our woods and yard, I picked a few flowers.
Look at the difference in these two pictures – with the difference in settings.
In the next week or so we saw a pheasant in the next door field or in our yard.
I wonder if it is the same one or if there are several in our area.
They have quite a regal stance when they are on alert.
We are blessed by lots of beauty in our yard and neighboring fields.
