Find the White Throat

White throat sparrowEven though it is officially spring, we have a few of our “winter” birds still taking advantage of the bird seed. There are a some dark-eyed juncos and I saw this white throated sparrow today hopping among the spring flowers and weeds (Look in the back in front of the boulder). They will  leave soon for their summer habitat and will show up here again late next fall.

Eastern bluebirdThe Eastern Bluebirds remain in the area all year and a pair stopped by today to enjoy the mealworms. Although I have several bluebird houses, they usually prefer to make their nests in some of the tree cavities. Whether in a bird house or in a hole in a tree, the resurgence of the Eastern Bluebird population has brought tremendous enjoyment to everyone who loves to watch birds.
