Though rain was not in the forecast, there was considerable light rain during my visit to Humber Bay.
I had my first Catbird and Kingbird of the spring.
The Catbird is a familiar bird about suburban hedges in southern Ontario. It is all gray except for the rufous undertail area and a black cap:
The Eastern Kingbird is common in warmer weather in semi-open habitats with a mix of grassy fields and trees.
I will identify it at the end of the post.
The brown head identifies this as a male Brown-headed Cowbird.
I enjoy adding the garlic mustard to my salads!
It is pleasantly edible.!
It enhances store bought greens……
I joke that I should start a false rumour that garlic mustard is an aphrodisiac, then it would be eradicated in record time!!!!!!!!
There is no time like Spring,
When life’s alive in everything,
Before new nestlings sing,
Before cleft swallows speed their journey back
Along the trackless track—
God guides their wing,
He spreads their table that they nothing lack— – Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–94)
