Walking in the forest

Mothers' day is past and there still are no leaves on the trees. However, the birds are very busy.

Yesterday, the crane flew over me. The woodpeckers are drilling. The birds of prey are screeching. Ducks and geese are everywhere. The chickadee is singing its characteristic interval. The robins are bouncing on the grassy spaces. Sometimes it gets so noisy here you'd think you are in a stocked zoological garden.

I walk by myself with the dog. I wish someone else would hear and see what I do. I guess that's why I'm posting it here!

The picture is from last fall, when the cat also came for a walk. There are always coyotes nearby, judging from the howling. If the howling seems very loud and near, I go home a little more quickly.
