This page begins with June 25th and some parent and young birds about 25 feet from our west window.  Then we go to a local rhubarb farm and harvest some rhubarb for Kazuya's Baked Delights.  Next are two photos of a mother grouse just south of our garden spot - the young were too quick to capture in photos.  In Row 6 we show you some Linnaea borealis (Twinflower) growing in our yard and some wild strawberry plants growing close to home.  Then there are 4 cute photos of a female Hairy Woodpecker (Leuconotopicus villosus) feeding her young one on our suet feeder.  Finally, there are three photos of Kazuya's Baked Delights table at the Tanana Valley Farmer's Market.

  Here are two shots of a young and a parent American Robin (Turdus migratorius) in our yard. The parent was hopping around catching small insects and bringing them back to her offspring. It was something which was amazing to watch. The third shot shows a young Hairy Woodpecker (Leuconotopicus villosus), whose parent was also doing some feeding of it with suet from our suet feeder.

  Here is a mother grouse in all of her amazing spring colors. This was taken just south of our garden spot. We were walking and young grouse started scurrying around to get out of our way. Here, the parent is trying to round them up.

  Here are three shots of Twinflower (Linnaea borealis) on our property. In 2016 and also in 2017 this was already in bloom the first week of June, but this year it did not appear until half-way through the third week of June - it's very late this year due to our late spring.
