Strix the harbinger
guards the exit gate, quizzing all
Who will pass this night?

This is a Black-crowned Night-Heron down by the lake in the backyard this morning. We have also had Hummingbirds and Baltimore Orioles at the sugarwater feeders the last couple of days. Lorna will probably be posting pictures on her blog. I just enjoyed watching them.

Lovely! Didn't realise you had some of those Texan birds in Minnesota. X

Most of those "Texas birds" are "Minnesota birds" on a winter holiday. They nest here.

And a number of them (waterfowl, etc.) are much more striking in their breeding trim.
