Snowy Grackle

Here’s a grackle outside our kitchen window:

Grackle in spring flurries – Souris

These birds return to our home every spring, and this year there are easily 60-80 of them. It’s hard to get an accurate count because they fly off as soon as they spot me at the window. Right now they’re all nesting and singing and chasing each other, the yard is a busy place. Hummingbirds will arrive soon too.

Marije and I are still doing well amid the pandemic and hope you are well too. At the moment there is just one active case of covid-19 on the island, so PEI has been very lucky. We are still taking strict precautions, Marije does all of our shopping, once every two weeks, and I clean every item that comes into our home. I stay home most of the time, though I’m looking forward to spending more time outside when the weather improves. 🙂



Well we agree with him, we’re ready for spring and our deck chairs are already waiting 🙂
