moorhens can't stop laughing because i keep forgetting and calling them gallinules

BF got home early from his business trip yesterday and finished the
hallway floor. Yay for the new hallway floor. It is a beautiful
warm oak Pergo instead of a landlord/low bid government
beige carpet. I often wonder how anyone who has ever been a tenant
at any point in her life can tolerate carpet.
We had dinner at Cappita -- some kind of peppercorn-crusted
salmon steak for him, a salmon salad on mixed greens for me.
Very good, very healthy.
I couldn't make myself get out of bed early today, but we
did a little birding between 9:30 and 11 A.M. at Fontainebleau
State Park before hitting the Mandeville Farmer's Market to
graze and pick up some oyster mushrooms, fresh shrimp, and
Creole tomatoes. Italicized birds were seen outside the park.
The Ruby-Throated Hummingbird was seen in my own backyard.
Beautiful males are still migrating through.
The song of the marsh today was laughter -- the taunting
laughter of the Moorhens, the more affable laughter
of the Laughing Gulls.
We saw a number of migrating Monarch Butterflies enjoying the sunny day. A trio seemed to be chasing each other like schoolchildren.
The weather was sunny and mild, with a breeze.

One Carolina Chickadee (I'm presuming the male) is bringing food and feeding the other Carolina Chickadee (presumably the female) in the blue birdhouse. I wonder if they have eggs yet.
Woo-hoo. Yes, it is a spring. A female Blue Grosbeak just stopped by. Last year a male migrated through the yard, and he was a real showstopper. The female sat on my suet feeder a few minutes but didn't show any interest in taking the suet. Perhaps she is traveling on to someone who has a seed feeder.
