Sightings

What type of wildlife have you seen in Tuscan Lakes? Share your story at lifestyledirector@tuscanlakes.com.

INDIGO BUNTING Indigo Buntings are actually black; the diffraction of light through their feathers makes them look blue. This explains why males can appear many shades from turquoise to black.

Indigo Bunting

They are more common now than when the pilgrims first landed. This is due to an increase in their favorite habitat of woodland edges, such as power line clearings and along roads.

They migrate at night, using the pattern of stars nearest the North Star to guide them. In captivity, these birds will become disoriented if they can’t see the stars in April/May and September/October. A group of buntings are collectively known as a “decoration”, “mural”, and “sacrifice” of buntings.

I am a graduate from U of H with a Bachelor of science in mathematics. I worked as an actuary right out of college but when Daniel got transferred to The Netherlands I became a stay at home Mom. I love being a mom. My children keep me pretty busy with soccer practice or games, voice lessons and crossfit. I am also a board member on the PTA at Goforth Elementary. Last January there was an article in the newsletter inviting Tuscan lakes residents to try a class at U Can Crossfit (I actually did the work out with Robin). I went to the class and fell in love with working out. Since then I have lost almost 30 pounds and I am healthier then I have ever been. I attend U Can Crossfit 4 to 5 times a week and challenge myself by doing local crossfit competitions. Nothing can make this 36 year old feel better than being able to hold her own with a bunch of 20 year olds at a local competition. All three of my kids have started crossfit and they love it. I enjoy running and have signed up with 2 friends to do the running part of a triathlon relay on Mother’s Day.

May Landscape Tips • Plant caladiums for summer color once the soil has reached 70°. • Prune and fertilize your azaleas after they have finished blooming. • Fertilize roses, following manufacturers instruction and water in well. Repeat every four to six weeks. • Weed your beds and apply mulch to discourage growth, maintain soil temperatures, and retain moisture. • Check your irrigation system to ensure that it is operating properly. • Pinching back growth on newly planted annuals and perennials will result in shorter, more compact, well-branched plants with more flowers. • Remove foliage that has yellowed from spring blooming bulbs. Fertilize all spring blooming shrubs. • Prune your azaleas after they have finished blooming.
