First nice weather of April

Yesterday's constant rain was probably Mother Nature's way of saying Happy April Fools. Regardless, today's nice weather made up for it.

First stop today was at London Heritage Farm. It was there when I heard this handsome House Finch singing non-stop.

I hope it will be rewarded.

At the other side of the farm, another House Finch was also singing, although not as earnest.

Not sure why, maybe because it was still early afternoon and sunny, but not as many honey bees were resting after they returned to their bee boxes. Therefore, I didn't get good photos of bee resting on sticks and so forth.

I am still uncertain where the bees go for their nectar sources because there just doesn't seem to be a lot of flowering plants around, besides the cherry/plum blossoms, although those are slowly dropping as well. However, I spotted some, but also small, flowers on the farm as well.

American Robin (Turdus migratorius)
There are several American Robins on the farm feeding on the worms. I am amazed how easy and efficient it seems for the robins to pick worms from the soil.

After the farm, I went to Steveston to return library books and photograph more blossoms.

Across from the library is a residential area with magnolia planted as sidewalks trees. Those are flowering as well.

After that, I biked towards Finn Slough and didn't see much except for these birds.

Double-crested Cormorants - an adult and a 1st year bird, it seems.

Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus)

Feral Rabbit
While biking home, I saw this patchy feral rabbit munching on the grass.

Overall, it was a nice day to be out before another system arrives.
