Backyard Nature Wednesday: Still here
By the first of March, it seemed that most of our winter visitor birds had left the area. No more Rufous Hummingbirds. No more American Goldfinches. No more Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers or Orange-crowned Warblers. No more Chipping...oh, wait, what is that?
|Likewise, I thought all the Pine Siskins had absconded, but no! Here's one perched in my redbud tree on Sunday and I later saw four of them at my feeders. I even heard an American Goldfinch in the pine trees next door.|
