First EXCITING spring bird of the season showed up in the yard on Thursday, a beautiful male Eastern Towhee. He stayed around for several hours, unfortunately I haven't see him since. Also new to the yard this spring was a Song Sparrow. I thought I saw a Chipping Sparrow the other day too but I haven't seen it again.
Tree Sparrows and Juncos are still around. Goldfinches are in varying stages of molt too, many very blotchy. Lots of Red-wings, Grackles, and even a few cowbirds. Turkey Vulture buzzed through yesterday too. Hopefully the sunshine this weekend will bring more of our 'spring beauties' back.
