We always had these in NY. One new bird to us was this little Indigo Bunting. Nice plumage as the pythons would say.

We really enjoy seeing the birds in out garden and Miss Lynne has a full time job keeping the feeders topped up. Not all the wild life is welcomed though.

The warm weather also answered the question about having turtles in the lake. We spotted at least three. That might not be good news for the recently added fish!
