The past few days have been a delight – beautiful weather and an amazing assembly of birds on the farm. Never have I seen such a variety of birds here at one time.
- Dark-eyed Junco
- Blue Jay
- Black-capped Chickadee
- Mourning Dove
- Red-breasted Nuthatch
Along with these newcomers:
A White-throated Sparrow and his less flashy mate.
What I think is an Eastern Pheobe – she was very shy, never coming too close.
A pair of House Finches.
I’m all but certain I saw a Bluebird this evening, – I scared him off when I ventured out to snap his pic.
I’m not sure what’s so special about this year that is bringing such a variety of beautiful birds to my yard, but I hope it continues!
