A pile of mayflies hatching and molting on the ground looked like a reenactment of last Sunday's "Battle of the Bastards" episode of The Game of Thrones.

I haven't been hearing any American Woodcock out back since about the first of June.
A Song Sparrow enjoys gleaning the ground for several minutes a day.
Eastern Towhees are heard singing daily from the woods out back, and occasionally make an appearance.
Oddly, no Sharp-shinned or Cooper's Hawks have been seen all spring.
The Black-capped Chickadees fledged several chicks, but have not been seen since the young left the bluebird box. A pair of Eastern Bluebirds were heard yesterday, so I'm hoping they find the now-empty bluebird box.
