Today's new species were:
- Red-shouldered Hawk
- Eastern Bluebird
- White-throated Sparrow
Here are a few pictures of birds from today's count.
A pair of House Finches enjoys a late afternoon snack at the front yard feeder.
The male Northern Cardinals are obviously ready for spring. Their bright new feathers almost glowed on this gloomy day.
The smallest and cutest of the sparrow family, the Chipping Sparrow has been an infrequent visitor to my feeders this winter. Yesterday, I was happy to see a flock of a dozen at my front yard feeder. That was the biggest group I had seen here this winter. Today, I only saw two.
I was surprised to see a single White-throated Sparrow in the backyard this afternoon. These pretty little sparrows are not often seen in my yard.
A pair of cute little Downy Woodpeckers flirted around my backyard today. I tried to get a picture of them together but I could only succeed in getting the female to pose.
It's been a fun and exciting four days in spite of some dreary weather. Tomorrow, I will sum up the weekend and give you the final total species list for my yard for this GBBC.
