Spring is Coming --The Red-Winged Blackbirds and Robins Are Back!

The red-winged blackbirds are back, as are the robins around these parts. It is so funny how the robin seems such a common bird in spring, summer, and fall, yet seems such a welcome sight at the end of a long, cold winter!

Here is a list of the birds we've seen at our feeder since January:

red-winged blackbird
house sparrow
song sparrow
purple finch
house finch
male and female cardinal
black-capped chickadee
mourning dove
brown-headed cowbird
dark-eyed junco

I'm jealous!! No birds at our feeders yet. :-) Got my Handbook of Nature Study and Bird Guide today so I'm ready to go. Bring on the spring!
