Official: Spring Fever
- Hello, All.
Orlando is rather jumpin' this morning. And I have to
write this from work, jittery hands barely able to
move the the mouse as the camera is feeling rather
While checking the finch feeders in between getting
the boys ready for school I noticed some extra
activity near the bird bath. Up from the ground popped
a rather buttery Pine Warbler right onto the back
deck. It flitted about the flower pots in great
morning sun but by the time I turned my back to grab
the digital, off he went.
Oh, well. The Goldfinches are still eating. Did I
mention the Goldfinches? Been getting them for the
past 2 1/2 weeks for the first time in almost 3 years
of trying to entice them to our yard. Some of you have
followed my woes and can now rest easy knowing I am,
indeed, a happy boy.
Several of the males are getting VERY gold.
After I dropped the boys at their respective schools
(a small flock of Waxwings leading the way) I headed
back to get the trash out and discovered a little
Western Palm Warbler back by the finch feeders. 2
Goldfinches were still feeding and several were
calling from the oaks. A flock flew overhead soon
The resident Jays, Mourning Doves and Titmice are
busy, busy, busy and the Cardinals are lining up all
Still seeing Robins throughout the neighborhood.
