By the first of March, it seemed that most of our winter visitor birds had left the area. No more Rufous Hummingbirds. No more American Goldfinches. No more Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers or Orange-crowned Warblers. No more Chipping...oh, wait, what is that?
|Likewise, I thought all the Pine Siskins had absconded, but no! Here's one perched in my redbud tree on Sunday and I later saw four of them at my feeders. I even heard an American Goldfinch in the pine trees next door.|
