Today’s offerings provide insight into some of our feathered friends, who are no doubt happy to see food sources being discovered and things starting to green up a bit.

As usual, the birdhouse erected late last year continues to be a popular focal point for wildlife. This time, rather than the deer picking the apple snack from the box, a black-capped chickadee explores the possibility of making the house his home.

In the other part, a male turkey walks calmly through the scene, checking out the surroundings.

Thanks again to Barak for the videos!
