It was good to see this Red-breasted Grosbeak at the feeder. I first heard its song on May 08, or just a week ago. Is it the same one as I saw last year? While it is impossible to say, I like to think that the one I saw last year survived fall and spring migration, and wintering where it did.
As I photographed this Common Grackle it suddenly took off, almost escaping my field of view.
This White-throated Sparrow has regularly visited the yard for several days now.
Even though the light makes its colour hard to distinguish, the profile clearly distinguishes this bird: It is a Northern Cardinal.
This Red-winged Blackbird was speckled by snowflakes.
This Mourning Dove sought bits of seed.
These two Mourning Doves settled down for a brief snooze outside my office window.
