More signs of spring

The daffodils are blooming and everyone is singing. After taking the junco picture yesterday, I haven’t seen any around, or white-throated sparrows. I think the hot, strong, wind today was just what some of our migrating friends needed.  Click on pictures to enlarge.

Now it’s starting to look like spring

The snow is pretty much gone and it’s a beautiful 68 degrees today. I was wearing my gloves when out walking this morning. You know the cliche–wait five minutes and it will change. Grackles are landing in waves, chatting and shoving each other around at the feeder. The juncos are still here, but I imagine they will leave any day. The sparrow below is waiting for a sharp-shinned hawk to stop circling the yard. Click on pictures to enlarge.

Yardbirds

It’s always fun to spend a little time out in the yard watching everyone coming and going. The amount of activity in such a small area is just amazing. Click on pictures to enlarge.

Baby, it’s cold outside

The Christmas blizzard generated nonstop action at our feeders. I keep saying, “Let’s invite everyone in.” I think our felines might have something to say about that. Click on pictures to enlarge.
