The Daily Dozen

Now that spring has arrived and bugs are in greater abundance, there is less of a frenzy at the feeders.  Still, it seems like each day there is a steady stream of visitors to enjoy.  Here are a dozen birds that dropped by over the last twenty four hours.

I thought the winter residents (Waxwings, White-throated Sparrows, and Yellow-rumped Warblers) would be gone by now.  Perhaps they heard that the north is still chilly and decided to linger longer in the warmer weather.  I am doing my best to convince them to stay!

    Is the Cowbird a migrant who has returned for spring Kathy?

  4. Terrific photos, as always, Kathy!

    We are still chilly here in the north and the birds have dropped off here, too. I am anxiously awaiting spring migration to begin. Then things will really get busy again!

  5. Beautiful photos as usual, Kathy! 🙂 I especially love how the waxwing’s pose is so regal. 🙂

    Nice photos! We don’t see Cedar Waxwings often where I live in Costa Rica. Are they an usual sighting over there?

  7. What a wonderful collection of birds you have there! Enjoy them!
    Your photos are really captivating, Kathy!
