Past Few Days

This past week, have seen all my usual Spring arrivals, except W Tanager. This AM saw a Swainson’s Thrush. Other Spring birds the past week have been: Lazuli Bunting, YR Warbler, Bullock’s Orioles vying for hummingbird feeder ports with the Black-chinned Hummers. In fact, watching a battle between 2 male Black-chinneds at the feeder as I write this! 

Chipping Sparrows have moved on. BH Grosbeaks get more numerous at the platform feeder daily. House Wrens are everywhere, Yellow Warblers have decent numbers. Others: Spotted Towhees, Song Sparrows, nesting Am Robins & BC Chickadees.
