Yellow-rumped warbler and Cassin's finch
- Hi folks,
A Yellow-rumped warbler and a pair of Cassin's finches appeared today
at our house for the first time this year.
We were especially excited to see the Cassin's finches as their numbers
have steadily declined over 20 years. Once an abundant resident in the
1980s that usually appeared in mid-March at our house, they have all
but disappeared from this neck of the woods.
We made a single sighting last year, for example, and today's
observation has been the only one to date this year. Hopefully it
won't be the last.
