This is very early for a Barn Swallows to fledge and be fed by parents (last year was May 10th); I think this chick may have been knocked out of the nest way early, but he/she seems to be doing OK:

Red Shoulders rarely take birds; they sen to prefer frogs, crawfish, and stream inhabitants (like water snakes). When things are frozen they seem to turn to voles, mice, etc. – they seem to leave the feeding songbirds alone. Infact, they are busy feeding very near to him. If a Coopers Hawk is in the area, there are no songbirds to be seen. These photos taken through a window with double-pane glass:

At the 105 year old Oark (yes Oark, no Z) Country Store on the upper Mulberry River in the southern Boston Mountains, with a decorated Cedar Tree and a beautiful floatable River just downstream at “Wolf Pen” access. Best burgers in Arkansas and beautiful old time atmosphere:

Weird !  In a year where everything seemed late and then stayed in bloom along time; The highest and coldest areas go the Boston Mountain range some Red-buds are still at peak. Ox-eye daisies usually bloom May 15 – June 1. So this is unusual.

Had a second pair of Purple Martins examine the house today; never had much luck with these birds. They’re are quite a lot of full Purple Martins on top of Shiloh and on top of Henderson Mountain. I am situated on a bench about 1000 feet below the mountain top and 200′ above the Little Buffalo River. I guess my house is hard to find ! The Bluebirds continue to incubate their eggs. One house, low enough for me to seen inside, has either 4 or 5 eggs. The other house I’m certain they are nesting in, is too tall for me to see inside.

Other pairs of Bluebirds continue to explore the newer house in the “house hunting” efforts. All photos here taken with a Canon 50D and a EF400L f/5.6 lens:
