I look forward to the return of the hummingbirds...I notice the males come first, then the females a week later.

I have year long tiny Finches (can't locate the exact name), Chickadees, lot's of songbirds. My biggest excitement is that I drew a Northern Flicker. Oh, how I would love to have a nesting pair. I think I have a pair of nesting Robins somewhere close. I have 2 Bluebird houses, but I read a person trying to draw a nesting pair should hang 6 ~ 8 around the yard.Jim built a new one yesterday, and hopefully we can get it up in time. They are the earliest nesters here. I am just happy that I planted a tree sapling the first year. It now shades my front yard, and my front birdbaths are right under it. I planted a lot of 2 yr. shrubs that are now quite large. I have quail galore! The great thing is that birds add beauty and song and antics to my day. Hope all of your birds sing to you today, Marian

Usually see humingbirds around March 15.  One was in the yard Thursday.  Haven't seen him since.

Just had a song sparrow visit the yard for the first time.

I hear they make a heck of a noise hammering the trees! One flew right over us one year while we had company in our yard, It was awesome. We also see the downys, the hairy occasionally, the red-bellied (messmaker!) and some flickers. Our goldfinches seem to stay the season.  Thanks Judith!

Just had 2 Yellow Rumped Warblers come in. That is a first at our new home----couldn't get a picture though, didn't stay quite long enough---I'm sure they will be back eventually--spring weather here for sure, low 80's by Sun---YAY!!!

Whenever I hear a pileated woodpecker I always think of Woody Woodpecker, lol. I just love them. We used to have one that visited the woods behind our house but apparently was always on his way somewhere else because we didn't see him frequently.

Great pictures, Nancy.  So nice to see those.  I can hear our pileated woodpeckers, but they are back in the woods somewhere.  Just a treat when they come out!

Cynthia, the goldfinches are on their way.  Haven't seen one here this morning.  I think they left yesterday.

that pileated is huge!!!  I am hearing a pair at work where they nested last year...watched mom tearing up a limb lookin for dinner for her two babies that were on the limb with her...too far away to get good photos but what a treat to watch.  What got my attention was seeing pieces of the branch dropping on the ground and I got my binoculars and there the three of them were on the branch.  I'm sure they will be around again.
