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.
