Had a gorgeous White Crowned Sparrow at my feeder this AM

Last edited Sat Apr 20, 2019, 06:00 PM - Edit history (2)



And a zillion juncos, breeding plumage gold finches and residual common redpolls.

They all did battle at the feeder.

My Boy Squirrel did acrobatics jumping on the feeder from the rail of deck.

A song sparrow, chickadees, a hairy woodpecker, white breasted nuthatch, and a pair of chipping sparrows as well.

And I saw wee bits of crocuses around my sun porch.

Still got 2 feet of snow on the garden though

6. Maine - and yes we still have snow - but it's going away fast

Just had a red breasted nuthatch and tufted titmice show up.

5. And a Pine Warbler just now! A new one for this feeder.

We have a south wind ahead of a warm front coming through and most of the snow melted this week.

All those pent-up migrants must be taking advantage of all that.

7. 2 feet of snow!

Wow! We lost the last of our ice sheet about a week ago. Thought we'd never melt. It was like the glaciers were making a come back.

8. Thanks for the beautiful pix, Jpak. Very lucky you!

You must live on the migratory super highway!

What an emotional relief after reading about Washington Jailbirds all day......

9. You haven't been visited by...

the ubiquitous Starlings and Grackles yet? These are what I refer to as the "republican" birds at my feeders. They drive the nice birds away and take everything that isn't nailed down. Starlings will kill other birds just for the fun of it. They're a plague upon the land. Truly.

11. Sparrows are quite diverse and beautiful

when one looks with a keener eye and an open heart.
