The morning sun is hitting the trees in the back of our house so they are painted in gold. I am not usually up this early so I don't get to see this. Also, I think I hear a frog or toad croaking from under the back deck. The birds are very active this time of day too. There is a tufted titmouse pair who nest every spring in a tree hole in the woods behind our house. The male is very vocal right now with his 'peter-peter' call.
