It has been a huge day at the feeder. So far today I have seen four new arrivals of the season.
First, however, a cameo from “jake”, or “future supper”.
Here is Mr. Thrasher. They have some 3000 different calls.
You all know Ray.
You all know the Chickadee.
Here is a new arrival: Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker, digging into the grape jelly I put out for newly arriving Orioles.
Red-winged Blackbird has been around a long time. This one is pimping his wings a bit.
New arrival: Red-breasted Grosbeak.
New arrival: White-Crowned Sparrow.
New arrival: Baltimore Oriole.
Just as I was transferring my photos to my computer, I saw the first Indigo Bunting of the year. I put out some millet, which they prefer. Hopefully I’ll be able to add a shot later.
They eat here because of your donations.
I did get the Bunting.
And also Mrs. Rose-Breasted Grosbeak showed up for the first time.
