Who Lives Here?

Who Lives Here?

When we moved to The Spring House there wasn’t a lot living here… it seemed like mostly a few non-native house sparrows and mosquitos. (Of course there were lots more living things here that that!)

Since then, though, it feels like an explosion of life.  To celebrate that we thought it might be fun to post a list of what lives on the property (as of May 2023), as well as a few we have also seen passing through.
