Far Guy has been hearing the Loons since Wednesday the 27th of April. I have not heard them yet..it was way too windy to hear anything yesterday except for the wind rushing through the barren trees.
Our acquaintance Larry has the Loon Cam up and running again. I put up a link off to the left of my blog. The Loons are building a nest in preparation for laying the eggs!
Here are a few birds that are in our yard this week.
A Downey Woodpecker
A female Cardinal!! We were both very excited to see her, our neighbors have been reporting that they have Cardinals..we have never had one in our yard before..so it was quite an event!
This is one of our new feeders..the Downey Woodpecker likes to hang on it upside down.
We fill this feeder almost everyday, some of the seeds end up on the ground for the Juncos and the fat squirrel. I have been noticing some fresh rabbit sign..so we are feeding the entire neighborhood.
This is a very happy Pine Siskin. They arrived last weekend along with the Purple Finches.
Far Guy put up another bird bath so that the birds would have more fresh water..they like to drink water out of Chances Coffee Can..and of course Chance shares.
We enjoy watching the birds especially this time of year when the bird populations change so much. We still have Juncos, Nuthatches and Chickadees visiting the feeders:)
