Courting season at the Celery Farm


   Nothing like yesterday's beautiful sunrise to kick courting season into high gear.

   Besides the screech owl intrigue, I can see all sorts of courting and house-warming activities going on.

   The images below are of:

   * a pair of swans who culd be looking for a place to nest.

   * a pair of house sparrows who have been setting up shop in a little nesting box in my backyard.

   * a pair of mallards who have been hanging out in the backyard. Mallards typically lay eggs somewhere along the stream in the backyard.

  * a pair of mourning of mourning doves acting, well, lovey-dovey.
